The Washington Lawyers’ Committee gathered with our partners and supporters December 1, 2021 hear more about our focus to dismantle injustice based on racial discrimination and to repair the damage of historical racial inequity. Presentations by clients, community members, co-counsel and staff will highlight the crucial work that you help make possible. Participation is free and open to the community.
The breakfast is named in memory of John L. Burke, Jr. For over 20 years, John served with distinction as the Committee’s General Counsel and as a volunteer attorney on a series of significant Committee cases.
Read about the cases we are featured this year on tenants’ right to organize (9:10), discrimination and retaliation in Prince George’s County Police (29:46), and access to education for students at the DC Jail (48:33).
