About ABA Day

ABA Day: Advocacy for Justice

ABA Day 2021 took place on April 20th and 21st. Participants were part of the nationwide push to have Congress address the spike in evictions and domestic violence brought on by the pandemic and enhanced security for our federal judges and courthouses.  

This year’s program was once again virtual, and there are still ways to get involved.  It has never been easier for you to participate, especially if you have not been able to join us before. 

Your voices for justice really do make a difference.

There were two ways to participate in ABA Day 2021:

  • First, we held virtual training programs and events to equip participants to be effective advocates and learn what a difference our efforts make when we work together. 
  • Second, we also connected participants to their state captains who organized virtual meetings with their congressional delegations.  Whether advocating in person or virtually in Washington DC or in your home districts, your outreach as a constituent is the most effective way to educate elected officials and win their support. 

Stay tuned for more information about advocacy events we are planning throughout the year.

You can also join the ABA Grassroots Action Team at ambar.org/grassroots to learn more about our current priority issues and how you can help.
