The Race and Social Justice Task Force’s mission is to develop a multifaceted approach to advance justice for all, including:  

• Conducting a series of CLEs which will focus on education and specific actions that members of our legal community can take to help dismantle systems of oppression. Topics will include: 

  • Understanding Implicit and Explicit Bias in legal institutions
  • Legal observer training
  • Diversity and inclusion in hiring
  • Jury selection and racial justice
  • Racial discrimination in the Criminal Justice System, Housing, Education, and Healthcare
  • Effective anti-racist ally-ship and advocacy

 • Educating our communities of color through “Know Your Rights” workshops that include demonstration law, immigration law, housing law, voting rights and the criminal justice system. 

• Encouraging our members to support social justice organizations with their time and donations.
