Learn how mental health issues may be impacting your workplace and how you can respond with knowledge and compassion. Learn to recognize signs of distress and how to take appropriate actions. Finally, learn where to find helpful resources in your community.

Michael Kuzma & Leslie James Pickering
Speaker Bio:

Michael Kuzma is a solo practitioner in Buffalo.  He has long viewed the law as being a tool to bring about social, political and economic change.  For nearly four decades, Mike has fought to make government more open and accountable through use of the federal and state Freedom of Information (FOI) laws.  He has litigated a number of FOI cases against agencies such as the CIA, FBI and New York State Department of Correctional and Community Supervision (DOCCS).  Mike has represented Native American activist and political prisoner, Leonard Peltier, Jalil Muntaqim, Occupy Buffalo and Leslie James Pickering.

Leslie James Pickering is a proprietor of Burning Books, a radical bookstore in Buffalo's West Side, and a long-time free speech and social justice advocate. Ongoing Freedom of Information Act litigation has exposed extensive targeting of Pickering by the FBI, including a two year eco-terrorism conspiracy investigation into Burning Books.
