Join us for a discussion with Dr. Peter Gabel about the role of law in shaping popular consciousness and how best to use it to bring about progressive social change.

He is Editor-At-Large of Tikkun magazine, a co-founder of the Critical Legal Studies movement in legal scholarship, and the author of many articles on law, politics, and social change. He is president of the Arlene Francis Center for Spirit, Art, and Politics in Santa Rosa, California, and the author of two books, The Bank Teller and Other Essays on the Politics of Meaning, and the recently released Another Way of Seeing: Essays on Transforming Law, Politics, and Culture.
