It has never been more necessary for lawyers to bring their talents and experience to bear in the fight to protect and restore both our climate and our democracy

As lawyers in the third act of our lives, we seek to meet this call with determination, ingenuity, and wisdom. The Third Act Lawyers Working Group will work with existing legal organizations that promote climate health and/or access to democracy. We are not legal counsel for Third Act; we will be a general legal resource for other Working Groups, Third Act as a whole, and other allies.

The challenges are great – and the time is now.

The Third Act Lawyers Working Group is getting started. We welcome the active participation of like-minded lawyers (and legal paraprofessionals) in these efforts. Please complete the sign-up form to join and one of our members will get in touch soon. If you have questions, ideas, or want to learn more, please email us at
