On #MLK's birthday, we remember the words he wrote in “Letter from Birmingham Jail."
“[W]e have not made a single gain in civil rights without determined legal and nonviolent action.”
Dr. King laid the foundation, and we will continue to build upon it as we fight for equality.
The South, where a majority of Black Americans live & where racial inequality remains deeply entrenched, is uniquely in need of add'l civil rights attorneys to work alongside community leaders & activists to bring about transformational change. You can be one of them. #YesYou
Congratulations to President and Director-Counsel @Sifill_LDF on being named @AmericanLawyer's 2020 Attorney of the Year! This prestigious award reflects her tireless and inspiring leadership. #TALAwards
An honor shared with my exceptional, superb colleagues at the @NAACP_LDF & the many other civil rights attorneys who stood tall in the fight for justice and equality in 2020. Thank you @AmericanLawyer!
A little note on the amazing woman who leads @NAACP_LDF: "Sherrilyn Ifill helps people see in their own mind’s eye this picture that up until then didn’t exist. She’s not just a visionary but one who brings people along to see that vision with her.” @Sifill_LDF
BREAKING: We just filed an amended complaint to our lawsuit challenging President Trump's Executive Order banning diversity training and added @theaaaed as a plaintiff.
We will continue to fight this anti-truth, anti-diversity EO.
During the @AJCGlobal Racial Justice Forum on Voting Rights and Election Integrity, @JNelsonLDF reminds us that white supremacy has always been the weight that has kept this country from soaring to its highest heights. "This is not about party, it is about principle."
In the latest episode of Black Lawyers Speak, @JNelsonLDF joins the UnCommon Law podcast to discuss the issue of diversity in the federal judiciary. The Trump administration's appointment of mostly white males will have a long-lasting impact on our courts.
ICYMI. We are not relenting. The #TrumpTruthBan targeting race & gender diversity in the workplace is a dangerous vestige of his toxic presidency. Our formidable plaintiffs @NatUrbanLeague & @natfairhouse have been joined by @theaaaed in our fight to hold #EO13950 unconst’l.
