The Climate Science Legal Defense Fund leads and participates in a variety of events for scientists and the public throughout the year. These range from workshops and webinars for researchers to help them understand their legal rights and responsibilities to presentations about attacks on science and scientists.
We hold events at many scientific conferences, including the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting, and we often collaborate with organizations such as 500 Women Scientists and the ACLU.
Please contact us if you’d like us to hold a training or workshop for scientists at your organization or to request that one of our attorneys speak at your event.

Augusta Wilson, a CSLDF attorney, is part of a panel that will address the many facets of the pandemic that are facing urban areas in the U.S. and around the world.
Participants will discuss the following topics:
- Response timeliness and appropriateness
- Geographic response to a situation that changes by the hour
- Marshaling resources
- Fair and equitable response for a city’s vulnerable populations
- Temporary residence for those experiencing homelessness or housing uncertainty
- Repurposing of public and private buildings for pandemic response
- Other topics as appropriate and if time allows
The panel will contribute as a guide for academic and practicing geographers to organize a response to COVID-19, analyze the responses after the pandemic, and provide a framework for lessons learned and future mitigation and preparation.
