See flyer for more information including parking and directions. Lowell Black History CLE Flyer Sept 23 Updated
The CLE, “Linking the Past to Our Advocacy: Lessons from Lowell’s Black History Trail” will be held outdoors–rain or shine– during lunchtime (since the trail runs very close to the Lowell Justice Center) and ends at our office for an ice cream social/debrief.
We’ll be walking the entire Lowell Black History Trail which consists of 16 pop-up markers throughout downtown Lowell. Feel free to bring a mask (or not) and socially distance (or not) during the walk–no judging, just walking. We’ll reflect on each of the markers and will have a few opportunities to discuss how lessons from the past can help us better advocate for our clients. At certain markers, they’ll be a chance to win *really cool* (legal term) prizes for participation in the discussion! The CLE will end at Freitas & Freitas, LLP, 256 Middlesex Street, for a free ice cream social (individually packaged, of course). Grab free water and a cool summer treat to take back with you to court, eat outside, or enjoy in the air conditioning with colleagues! Check out the attached flyer for more details and parking tips.
BONUS: In our loop back for the ice cream social, we’ll also be admiring the Black History Art Walk banners hanging on the street lamps on Middlesex Street from the RMV garage up to the Courthouse.
