Should anti-poverty advocates focus on racial justice advocacy? How do racial justice and anti-poverty advocacy intersect, and what barriers impede legal aid participation in that work? Informed by the results of a recent NLADA survey, our panelists will dig into these questions and offer a range of perspectives on the importance of racial justice to anti-poverty advocacy. Speakers will include Carol Ashley, Vice President of Advocacy, Shriver Center; Camille Holmes, Director, Leadership and Racial Equity, NLADA; and Bill Kennedy, Managing Attorney, Legal Services of Northern California.
