Statement of Purpose

Who We Are:

The New York City People’s Law Collective is a collective of anarchists who are also activists, organizers, law students, community and legal workers. We are not lawyers. We are people with knowledge of the legal system, its value and limits, and how it can be used for and against us. History and our own experiences demonstrate the need for legal resources offered from a radical perspective. Used in this way, the law is one tool among many for our movements.

What We Do:

The New York People’s Law Collective provides legal support, training, and education to people and groups engaged in radical action towards liberation and equality. We act as a radical presence in the legal community, provide jail support for activists that have put themselves in peril, facilitate popular education and training on rights and legal issues, and assist other communities in organizing legal collectives of their own.

Our Principles:

Our work is founded on the principles of liberation, solidarity and mutual aid, consensus process and critical use of the law. We are anarchist, anti-racist, anti-sexist, and anti-capitalist. We are a part of the movements with which we work, not separate and detached. With these principles, we carry out our work of providing legal support, training, and education to people and groups engaged in radical action.
