      Book Signing and Conversation with

        Daniel P. Sheehan

         Daniel Sheehan is a Harvard-trained Constitutional and public interest lawyer.   Over the last forty-five years his work as an attorney, speaker, and educator has helped to expose the structural sources of injustice in our country and abroad, protect our fundamental and inalienable rights. Daniel's dedication to his vision and work has put him at the center of some of the most important legal cases and social movements of our lifetimes such as the Pentagon Papers and Watergate. After meeting Sara Nelson during their work on the Silkwood Case, they started the Christic Institute, which would go on to uncover the Iran-Contra Affair.

      Today, Daniel Sheehan is general counsel of the Romero Institute, where his current focus is the Lakota People's Law Project. The Lakota People's Law Project seeks to end the epidemic of child seizures of Native American Lakota children in South Dakota, and stop the state practice of placing the vast majority of these Lakota children in non-Native families, in violation of the federal Indian Child Welfare Act.
