As Scott mentioned previously, I assist LDAD with website and media work. I wanted to share the direct links to the letters and statements Gary referenced in his last note in case they may be helpful:
Open Letter to the President and Congress (Feb. 2019)
Stop Presidential Attacks On Our Democracy (Sept. 2019)
Open Letter to the Senate (Jan. 2020)
We also recently (Feb. 14, 2020) issued a “Call to America’s Lawyers” urging lawyers to commit – by signing onto our “Call” – to take whatever actions they can to protect and defend the Constitution, the rule of law, and our system of government. The text of this statement can be viewed online here (this is also where lawyers can go to sign-on). You will see we’ve suggested several actions lawyers can take now. If you believe any of your contacts would be interested in any of the above, I know LDAD would appreciate your spreading the word.
Scott and Gary gave a great history of LDAD’s founding and principles. If you’d like to read more, please view our About Us page. This feature in the National Law Journal also provides a good introduction to our work and focus.
I’ll be on the lookout for any next steps or questions from you or from our group.
