COVID-19 caused the Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council to re-envision Lip Sync for Justice – their annual fundraising event for the DC Bar Foundation. But not to worry! The Leadership Council now invites you to save the date for Avenues to Justice, a virtual fundraiser focusing on race, equity, and civil legal aid in DC, on October 8, from 6:30 - 7:45 PM. Register for the event today!
Moderated by DC Attorney General Karl Racine, Avenues to Justice promises to be thought-provoking, energetic, and engaging. Attorney General Racine will be joined by author and civil rights activist DeRay Mckesson, along with other panelists to be announced soon. DeRay Mckesson is a civil rights activist focused primarily on issues of innovation, equity and justice. As a leading voice in the Black Lives Matter Movement and a co-founder of Campaign Zero, DeRay has worked to connect individuals with knowledge and tools, and provide citizens and policy makers with commonsense policies that ensure equity.
We invite you to help us further our commitment to racial justice by sponsoring this event (corporate and individual sponsorships are available). All proceeds from Avenues to Justice benefit our work, which has been made even more critical due to the COVID-19 pandemic; providing equal access to justice within our community by strengthening, expanding, and transforming the District's civil legal aid network.
