Massachusetts Dissent

Commissioned Documentary for the National Lawyers Guild Mass Chapter, 2019

After the ravages of McCarthyism, the Mass Chapter of the National Lawyers Guild began to rebuild. In Massachusetts Dissent, the Mass Chapter founders tell stories of their politicization, their contribution to the reemergence of the Mass Chapter, and the work they have done with the National Lawyers Guild since its re-founding in the late 1960's. Today, the National Lawyers Guild plays an important role in protecting organizers and protestors working for justice and human rights. The founders share their hopes and trepidations for the future and wisdom to today’s public-interest lawyers on how to continue to orient their skill sets against all forms of oppression.
