The Law Firm Anti-Racism Alliance, which now boasts north of 240 participating firms, held its first summit, virtually, from Wednesday to Thursday, looking to put tactical reality to the strategic task of changing the way our institutions deal with racial inequality, an issue that some institutions have in fact perpetuated.
“This was a tremendous undertaking, with a lot of resources and a deep commitment from a large amount of people,” Brenna DeVaney, director of pro bono programs at participating firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, said of the summit. “We hoped to do two things: ensure a foundation for understanding what systemic racism is and identify what work needs to be done and how we are going to organize ourselves to do it.”
