Presented in partnership with WSBA Civil Rights Law Section
“If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time. But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.”
For attorneys serving underrepresented and marginalized communities and attorneys working with racially and linguistically diverse client populations, it’s critical to examine our biases and privilege and learn tools to disrupt systems of oppression to allow us to bring our full humanity to this work.
This training is designed to help you understand power and privilege dynamics in our work with diverse client populations by 1) acknowledging the impact of implicit bias individually and structurally; 2) examining implicit bias in the civil rights context; and 3) applying mindfulness techniques to reclaim health and wellness. Whether you work in the private or public sector, this training is for you.
