Peggy Li, ACS Associate Director of Student Chapters
At ACS, we believe that the law should be a force to improve the lives of all people. Our members—lawyers, law students, judges, professors, and policymakers—aim to build inclusion and equity.
Despite our best intentions, our behavior and choices are often influenced by biases that operate outside of our conscious awareness. As such, in order for us to build equity, it is vital for us to understand these processes, its role in perpetuating social inequality, its impact on our profession, and its impact in our courts. To build equity, we also need to proactively engage in disrupting bias.
