Abstract:

Featured in the May-June 2002 issue of Clearinghouse Review: Journal of Poverty Law and Policy focusing on racial justice, this article argues that the civil legal aid and state justice communities need to give greater priority and commitment to race-based advocacy. As an introduction to the issue, the article provides some specific examples--from the federal anti-discrimination laws to use to office hiring practices--of how these communities can better pursue racial justice.
