TRUMP ACCOUNTABILITY TEAM

History will remember the lawyers who engineered or defended the Trump Administration’s attacks on civil rights, immigrants, workers’ rights, the climate, and democracy itself.

In the meantime, these lawyers think they can launder their reputation with a cushy job in BigLaw or a fancy academic post—and their law firms don’t think their reputations or bottom line will take a hit. But we’re going to show the legal profession that there are consequences for hiring Trump’s legal architects and profiting off of the Administration’s heinous misdeeds.

Read and sign our open letter to let law firms and law schools know how many of us are watching. And law students, take our pledge that you will not interview with or work for law firms that continue to undermine our democracy.

Everyone is invited to sign our open letter to let law firms and law schools know that we’re watching who they hire—and it had better not be Trump’s legal architects.

TAKING ACTION

We’re organizing creative, COVID-safe actions to name and shame bad actors in our communities and supporting organizers nationwide to do the same.

EDUCATING OTHERS

The Facts About Trump’s Law Firms

Our democracy is under attack. President Trump’s reelection campaign and the Republican National Committee have filed frivolous lawsuits in states across the country in an attempt to overturn the results of a fair election and undermine our democratic process. These lawsuits are failing and have received vehement criticism for their meritless attempts to sow discord and distrust.
