Sunday Organizing Call: Standing Up for Racial Justice & Trans Rights

This year, conservative activists have launched a concerted onslaught against racial equity and queer and trans communities. Progressive lawyers at all levels, including law students have a crucial role to play in resisting these attacks and fighting back to defend communities of color and transgender people. In this Sunday Organizing Call, ACS invites student chapter leaders and allies to learn concrete strategies that they can apply right now in the fight for justice, and to brainstorm ways to mobilize their chapters to advance change.
