ACS National Convention 2014


Progressive Champions


The ACS National Convention is the premier legal event of the year, attracting more than 1,000 of the nation’s leading progressive judges, lawyers and policymakers. The convention provides a unique opportunity to learn about pressing legal issues while networking with lawyers, professors, policy advocates, judges and elected officials. This year’s convention included panel discussions on a wide range of topics including voting rights in the post-Shelby County era, campaign finance after Citizens United and McCutcheon, reproductive rights and web privacy.

At this year’s convention, we hosted a conversation between U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor and longtime civil rights attorney and leader Theodore M. Shaw. We also honored 2014 Progressive Champions Peter B. Edelman, a distinguished law professor and director of the Center on Poverty, Inequality, and Public Policy, at Georgetown University Law School and Rick A. Palmore, General Mills’ executive vice president, general counsel, chief compliance and risk management officer, and secretary.
