Chair's Column

The Section is pleased to announce
Kirke Kickingbird
as the 2016-2017 Section Chair


Former Chair's Column

This is the last column that I have the opportunity to write as chair of the Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice. Usually, the final chair’s column is a time to reflect back on the year and identify some of the Section’s highlights and accomplishments. I am, indeed, proud of the Section’s many accomplishments during this 50th anniversary, and appreciate the Herculean efforts of our volunteers and staff that contributed to an amazing year of programming.

But the painful events of the past few months preoccupy the thoughts of many of us even as we take pride in the bar year that is coming to a close.
