District of Columbia Bar Communities are committed to advancing the Bar’s core organizational values of diversity and inclusion within the organization and the legal profession as a whole. Communities actively work to foster and promote an inclusive environment that values the unique contributions of our diverse volunteer membership base. Promoting diversity is critical to our shared successes because members provide varied perspectives, experiences, backgrounds, and strengths to ensure Communities uphold the foundational pillars upon which the District of Columbia Bar was created: Enhance access to justice. Improve the legal system. Empower lawyers to achieve.
