Coalition on Racial & Ethnic Justice

The ABA Coalition on Racial and Ethnic Justice (COREJ) examines issues stemming from the intersection of race and ethnicity with the legal system. COREJ partners with non-ABA entities to address these issues. We consider ourselves the conscience of the ABA when it comes to focusing on social justice issues effecting the too often voiceless and vulnerable among us.
