What is the Law Union of BC?
“The Law Union of BC is a progressive organization of lawyers, law students, legal workers, activists and community members who seek to use the law as a tool for social change. We recognize that any engagement with the law is inherently political, and that to stay neutral in the face of oppression is to side with the oppressors. We also recognize that communities experiencing oppression are experts in their own lives. We embrace an intersectional approach to opposing all forms of oppression, including but not limited to racism, gender- and sexuality-based oppression, classism, ableism, and colonialism. We stand in solidarity with groups including Indigenous peoples, migrants with and without legal status, prisoners, drug users, sex workers, and the homeless and underhoused. We recognize members without regard to gender, sexual preference, age, colour, race, religion, political belief or affiliation, education level, condition of restraint within any institution, or any other category.”
