CSLDF and American Geophysical Union (AGU) want to help scientists understand their legal rights and responsibilities—we believe this knowledge is an essential part of every researcher’s professional development. So we’ve partnered on the “Legal Education for Scientists Program” for eight years, and are offering a range of events at the 2019 AGU Fall Meeting in December.
Join us after work on Tuesday, July 16 for a workshop hosted by the Federal Workers Coalition of New York City. The "Know Your Rights" portion will be led by a lawyer from the Climate Science Legal Defense Fund and the "Workplace Organizing" portion will be led by an experienced union organizer from Labor Notes.
On Tuesday, July 17, the Environmental Protection Agency is holding a public hearing on its proposed "transparency" rule, which would restrict the use of science in agency decision making. Augusta Wilson, one of our staff attorneys, will attend the hearing and speak about why the EPA must rely on the best available science.
If you're a scientist in New York City, please join us on Thursday, July 19 for our first event with 500 Women Scientists. This informal workshop, led by our attorneys, will help researchers from all disciplines understand their legal rights and responsibilities.
We’re pleased to be an official partner of the March for Science and look forward to standing with the scientific community on Saturday, April 14. This weekend our staff will participate in a range of March of activities in New York City and Washington, D.C. and we look forward to seeing members of our community at these events.
