    The ABA Young Lawyers Division Men of Color Project is collaborating with the National Bar Association Young Lawyers Division and Thomson Reuters Institute to organize a Men of Color Town Hall to address current issues on racial injustice and police brutality. We recognize that both issues have disproportionately impacted men of color in communities nationwide, and have deemed it critical to foster an earnest conversation on addressing the crisis at hand. The program invites participants to engage prominent stakeholders in the movement to help men of color overcome such troublesome developments. Working together, we hope to offer practical guidance on moving the needle from awareness to action and accountability.
