Following President Larry McDougal’s report to the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors on September 25 that he plans to hold virtual community conversations on race relations for each of the 17 State Bar director districts around the state before June 2021, based on Project Unity’s Together We Dine project, we would like to invite all State Bar of Texas Sections, Committees and Local Bar Associations to notify the Texas Bar College of upcoming events or discussions surrounding topics related to race and racism in the law and its impact on the entire Bar. We will highlight those events in the College’s Quarterly Member Bulletin to our members and the public, including links to the events and other pertinent information.
We invite you to provide information on upcoming events or discussions on the role of race in the law to firstname.lastname@example.org.
