  Dear Fellow Activists:

        As you know, the National Lawyers Guild and its member 
attorneys, legal workers and law students provide critical legal 
support for activists and targeted communites in the New York City 
area.   This includes pro bono representation in criminal court, 
legal observers at demonstrations, and legal advice when the NYPD or 
FBI comes knocking.  The Chapter operates on a shoe-string budget.  A 
big part of that budget is our annual "Spring Fling" where our 
members and supporters gather for good food, dancing and 
socializing.  We also use the Spring Fling to honor attorneys and 
legal workers whose commitment to justice exemplify the work of the 
NLG-NYC.  This year's Spring Fling will take place on Friday April 
16, 2010 from 6-10 PM at the historic Angel Orensanz Arts Foundation, 
172 Norfolk St. in the Lower East Side.  The event will honor the 
work of noted Peoples Lawyers and strugglers for justice Myron 
Beldock, James Myerson, Michael Tarif Warren, Evelyn Warren and Lynne Stewart.

      The NLG-NYC needs your support to continue to work 
effectively.  We urge you and/or your organization to purchase 
tickets and attend this important event.  There are various price 
levels at which tickets may be purchased.  Follow the link below for 
more information and to buy tickets.  We hope to see you on April 
16!  Forward this e-mail far and wide!

Susan Tipograph, President
Mark Taylor, Vice President
Beth Baltimore, Vice President
Bob Boyle, Treasurer
Susan Howard, Chapter Coordinator
