What attendees are saying about LDF's Annual
Civil Rights Training Institute:
"I've developed some of my best litigation and advocacy ideas from the Legal Defense Fund's Airlie conferences. It's not just the formal presentations that are important - it's the value of being around supportive and creative colleagues who are pushing the envelope of what's possible in our evolving civil rights movement."
Philip Tegeler: Executive Director,
Poverty & Race Research Action Council
"I consider the Airlie conference to be essential to my work. Each time I attend Airlie, I leave with new ideas, new connections, and a renewed spirit."
