Courageous Conversations

The Seeking Equal Justice Committee has created a new series called Courageous Conversations to encourage dialogue on the sensitive topics surrounding race and ultimately create a better understanding of the differing views surrounding this issue.

The first of these conversations was held Sept. 30 and highlighted CK Hoffler of The CK Hoffler Firm and president of the National Bar Association, and Jonathan Ringel, managing editor of the Daily Report, moderated by Anita Wallace Thomas of Nelson Mullins. Hoffler and Ringel, along with representatives from the Daily Report's parent company, discussed a racially insensitive headline that ran in a recent issue of the Daily Report.

Seeking Equal Justice and Addressing Racism and Racial Bias Committee

The purpose of the Seeking Equal Justice and Addressing Racism and Racial Bias Committee is to consider, analyze, strategize, and recommend to the Executive Committee and the Board of Governors how best to:

  1. Engage, listen and learn from all who are willing to share their experiences with bigotry and racism;
  2. Identify, address and eradicate bigotry, racism, and racial bias in the administration of justice in this State;
  3. Encourage, partner with and assist local Bar associations and other law-related organizations, entities and agencies to accomplish these goals state-wide; and
  4. Otherwise ensure an equal system of justice for all. In addition, this committee shall assist the Executive Committee and the Board of Governors in the execution and implementation of the above enumerated actions.
