Conference: Serving the Legal Needs of Urban Native Americans, March 31, 2011, Seattle

 

We’d like to spread the word to Seattle’s (and beyond) Native American community about a great conference on Thursday, March 31, 2011 in downtown Seattle.  It’s called “Serving the Legal Needs of Urban Native Americans“.   And it’s free!

The conference will focus on the civil rights of urban Indians, as well as an introduction to the human resources that are available to protect those rights and deliver critical health care, housing, shelter, and employment services. 

Featuring well-known Northwest Native American lawyers, advocates, and community leaders, the conference is open to Tribal leaders and members, attorneys, advocates,  law students and anyone interested in helping protect the legal rights of Native people living in urban centers.

The conference is sponsored by the venerable Foster Pepper law firm, which has a Native American practice headed by Greg Guedel, as well as the American Bar Association’s Section of Individual Rights and Responsibilities (which Greg also heads) and the Northwest Justice Project.

Register at the website.  The conference is at Foster Pepper 1111 Third Avenue, 30th Floor Conf. Center, Seattle.
