The Network for Justice seeks to build a network that engages the legal academy, lawyers, policy makers, students, and community leaders to transform Latinx civil rights through sustained collaboration.

This first webinar kicks off a series of online discussions that explore issues of concern and interest to the Latinx community that focus on four key drivers of opportunity and mobility: economic participation, civic engagement, immigration, and education. Through this webinar series, we hope to engage individuals to contribute, unite, and be resources of progress to support a Latinx civil rights agenda in communities around the country.

Discussion Topics:

  • What is the Network for Justice?
  • Why do we need the Network for Justice?
  • How can I engage with the Network for Justice?
  • What are the future plans of the Network for Justice?
