AFCC-MN is making an effort to let our members know about events that reflect and support diversity in our professional community. Past-President Referee Street shared this information about the annual Gala for the Minnesota Association of Black Lawyers. We encourage members to attend in order to learn more about MABL, and to support their work. Each member of the Board of Directors has pledged to attend at least one event from an “affinity organization” in the coming year, and we encourage our members to join us. If you are aware of events such as this, which support the work of an organization that serves a BIPOC or other marginalized community, please let us know about it!
The MABL Foundation Scholarship Gala will held virtually on Thursday, December 17, 2020, from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
In addition to the scholarship and awards portion of the event, MABL will host a panel made up of distinguished speakers to address the inequities in our legal profession and discuss strategies for addressing racial justice. More information here
