The murder of George Floyd, recent protests across the country, and the disparate impact of COVID-19 have brought into sharp focus systemic inequities both in the justice system, the legal profession, and their respective communities. Representatives from the National Affinity Bar Associations will discuss how they are identifying and addressing these inequities and share their strategies for breaking down the barriers of bias, racism, and discrimination.
This program is part of the ABA's Racial Equity in the Justice System, a central clearinghouse of ABA-related information and resources for attorneys, the legal profession and the public on a wealth of issues addressing bias, racism and prejudice in the justice system and society.
