A new player has entered the amicus brief arena in the U.S. Supreme Court: an alliance of more than 300 large and small law firms, all with the singular purpose of eliminating systemic racism in the law.

There are, of course, a number of civil and human rights organizations also pursuing racial justice, but the Law Firm Antiracism Alliance (LFAA) says it is unique. Its charter states its purpose is to “leverage the resources of the private bar in partnership with legal services organizations to amplify the voices of communities and individuals oppressed by racism, to better use the law as a vehicle for change that benefits communities of color and to promote racial equity in the law.”
