The Anti-Racist Prosecutor: An Obligation to Act

May 20, 2021

11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. ET
120-minute presentation 
CLE: 2.00 Credits

What can prosecutors do?  It’s hard to imagine an issue more pressing in America today than racial justice and equity.  Prosecutors across the country are deeply troubled by current research and disturbing current events.  Many have heard the voices in their community calling for change yet wonder what they can do to promote racial equity beyond the actions they are already taking to ensure a just society for everyone.  This lecture will discuss the origins of racial injustice in America and will explore common myths about race.  Our goal is that attendees leave with the mindset of an “anti-racist prosecutor,” knowing what they can do to help dismantle systemic racism in America and mitigate its effects.
