Description:

Join us for the first program of the “Amplifying Unheard Voices” series, which seeks to highlight and amplify underrepresented perspectives of attorneys, clients and communities that engage with the legal system regularly, and to move towards more equitable representation of and opportunities for these communities. 
 
This first discussion in the series will focus on amplifying the Black, male perspective in a discussion moderated by Rahsaan Hall, Director of the Racial Justice Program of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Massachusetts. In addition to uplifting the voices of Black men within the legal profession, this panel will provide an opportunity for attorneys to hear from non-attorney professionals such as community organizers.
 
Future panels in this series are presently expected to highlight additional perspectives such as:

  • Black Trans Attorneys, Organizers & Clients 
  • Voices from Behind the Wall: Presently & Previously Incarcerated Individuals
  • Black Law Students
  • Court User Experience
