NACDL has a long tradition of fighting to protect constitutional principles, and standing up for the individual against the government. In keeping with that tradition, the NFCJ and NACDL have committed to establish a First Amendment Strike Force and Mass Defense Unit. The goal of this project is to provide qualified counsel to represent protesters when the exercise of First Amendment rights results in arrest and prosecution. Specifically, NACDL supports a cadre of criminal defense lawyers who will be available to provide pro bono assistance to protesters throughout the country in the event of mass arrests. For those lawyers who volunteer, NACDL will maintain a data base of available counsel, and will provide training and support at no cost to assist these volunteers.
