It’s Pride Month, a month that centers the radical legacy of Black and Brown queer and trans people who rose up against police brutality and state violence! This month and every month we honor and celebrate the organizing, resilience, resistance, and rebellion of our LGBTQIA + community, and continue to follow the leadership of those on the ground, in the streets, and beating down doors to institutions of power in pursuit of queer and trans liberation! This year for Pride Month, we're excited to uplift our partners across the African continent who are challenging the legacy of colonialism and imperialism that oppresses those who dare to live in their authentic identity, gender expression, and sexuality. Stay tuned for opportunities to be in dialogue and community with our clients, comrades, and co-conspirators as we build towards a world where all of our queer and trans siblings are afforded justice, equality, safety, abundance, and the ability to live in the fullness of who they are.

Michael Ratner devoted four decades of his life to the Center for Constitutional Rights, as a staff attorney, legal director, and board president, until his untimely death in 2016. We miss him every day, but he left a powerful legacy. Not only did he handle some of the most significant human rights cases of his time, he lived and breathed the principles of radical lawyering.
Join us Wednesday, June 16 2–3 p.m. EST as our Executive Director Vince Warren, Legal Director Baher Azmy, former Center for Constitutional Rights Staff Attorney and Board Member Ellen Yaroshefsky, and Senior Staff Attorney and Associate Director of Legal Training and Education Rachel Meeropol discuss Michael Ratner’s just published autobiography Moving the Bar, and reflect on his inspirational and indispensable lessons for the next generation of movement lawyers and activists.
