Subcommittee Goals

The Black Civil Rights Education Subcommittee is committed to educating firm members about the history of civil rights for black Americans, and providing information about current issues affecting the community. The subcommittee hopes to continue highlighting current events for firm members who are non-minority, and who may not otherwise have exposure to minority perspectives and experiences.

“Speaking on the firm with book club, "It opened up discussions, and provided a valuable opportunity to explore different viewpoints"”
