When it comes to fighting Chicago's problems with police misconduct and false confessions, volunteering with First Defense Legal Aid lets you be a part of the solution! FDLA runs the nation's only 24 hour hotline that provides free, direct legal representation to individuals in Chicago Police custody. We are seeking volunteers to take shifts on the hotline and directly advocate for the rights of clients in police custody. FDLA is one of few organizations where you can gain this type of hands-on, stationhouse representation experience. Join us for our next orientation and learn more about how you can help the movement for police accountability.

RSVP preferred but not required to volunteer @
