ACS Bay Area: Eleventh Annual Gala - From Protests to Policy

Join the ACS Bay Area Lawyer Chapter for our Eleventh Annual Gala and our first virtual gala event, as we address the transformative power of the nationwide protests following the murder of George Floyd. This event will address how the collective power of protests can be channeled into creating concrete policies.
