National Lawyers Guild

The National Lawyers Guild was formed in 1937 as the nation's first racially-integrated bar association.  Its mission was to serve people, not property interests, and to work for social and economic justice.  During the second Red Scare, Guild lawyers represented many victims of the anti-communist hysteria, including members of the Hollywood Ten.  The Justice Department later admitted that charges that it was a "subversive organization" were baseless.  Today, the National Lawyers Guild has a national office in New York and many local chapters.
