WEBINAR | Legal Business as Usual | Topic: MSBA Response to Killing of George Floyd

Event Description


Athena Hollins, Senior Director of Diversity and Foundations for the Minnesota State Bar Association, will join us for a discussion about the MSBA's response (and the response of other bar associations) to the killing of George Floyd. The bar associations are mobilizing to work toward addressing systemic changes. How do we go about this? Are there strategies from other organizations that might inform this discussion here at the MSBA?

NOTE: If you can't join on Zoom, find us at YouTube Live. We monitor chat on both channels.
