Join us Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 12 noon, when the Tarrant County Bar Association’s Diversity Committee presents: Side* Bar Conversations. This even is co-hosted by the L. Clifford Davis Legal Association and Black Women Lawyers Association.
How can we tackle the issues we have discussed so far regarding race and racism in the practice of law? This program will focus on tangible steps to tackle racism in the practice of law. We will look at both the experience for BIPOC lawyers, and also for BIPOC clients. We will explore the idea of Anti-Racism as a way to activate the sentiment against racism to create change.
