REP-A-THON: a live-streamed legal defense fundraiser


Add to My Calendar Saturday, May 4, 2024 12:00pm to 6:00pm


Join the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Southern Center for Human Rights, and the Color of Change for “Rep-A-Thon,” a live-streamed legal defense fundraiser.

Legal representation is important. This is especially true in Atlanta today as dozens of individuals are being prosecuted as a result of exercising their First Amendment Right to protest and dissent. Harkening back to old-school telethons that generated attention for worthy causes, this modern-age Rep-a-Thon is centered on raising awareness of the attack on the right to protest and dissent in Metro Atlanta and to raise funds to support the Southern Center for Human Rights' First Amendment Lawyer Bridge, a joint effort with Community Justice Exchange to coordinate legal representation for individuals facing prosecution for exercising their right to protest and dissent, as well as providing support and training to the attorneys representing them.

As prosecutions against protesters grow in complexity and frequency, First Amendment protections are slowly being eroded. The Bridge is an innovative, first-of-its-kind, permanent response to efforts to quell dissent—a permanent mass defense infrastructure, harnessing the collective expertise, creativity and power of movement, and zealous advocacy.

Join us for an afternoon of history, education, music, and wellness, and learn how you can help support the fight against state repression. Center for Constitutional Rights Executive Director Vince Warren will join other speakers.
