Are We Full of Contradictions? Legal Aid Programs and Racial Justice Advocacy

Thursday October 17
2013

  • By: Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law
  • Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Time Zone: Central Time (US & Canada)
  • Location:
    Chicago, IL
  • Website: povertylaw.org

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? Join the Shriver Center for a free webinar to discuss these questions. Our panelists, who will include both legal aid advocates and members of the civil rights community, will dig into these questions and offer a range of perspectives on the importance of racial justice to anti-poverty advocacy.
