Rose Regina Lawrence was the daytime coordinator for OWS Jail Support from October 2011 through May 2012 and was largely responsible for developing the response system that Jail Support uses. She is a founding member of Building Bridges for Collective Liberation, a new group coming out of Occupy that is focused on developing tools and trainings to help activists and members of targeted communities empower themselves through increased legal literacy. She has been involved in anti-authoritarian organizing since 2003. Her past affiliations include: starting a squatted infoshop and zine library at Simon’s Rock College, active member of her local indymedia collective, organizing with the Radical Students Union at UMass Amherst, member of the Wooden Shoe Collective, founding member of the NYC Consent Working Group, and very proud activist legal worker member of the NYC chapter of the National Lawyers Guild. She also reads comix, plays board games, geeks out about telecom tech, knits, spins, sews, and otherwise crafts whenever she can figure out the time for it in and her busy schedule of agitating for radical change and resisting government repression.
