Featured Story

The Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law has announced that 41 Fellows have been selected to participate in the 2016 Racial Justice Training Institute (RJTI). RJTI is a national training program that builds the capacity of low-income people’s advocates to deploy up-to-date racial justice advocacy skills that address the role racism plays in causing and perpetuating poverty.

The RJTI, with generous support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Pritzker Foundation, includes a combination of online and in-person training completed over a six-month period. Working in teams, and with support from skilled faculty, RJTI participants will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to address structural racialization in housing, education, employment, healthcare, and more.

Discussion Groups and Collaboration

E-mail discussion groups have been set up in the many areas of the law. These groups are a great way to keep up with things and interact with your colleagues. You can discuss recent developments in the law, ask and answer questions, or just read the postings of others to learn about the issues people are working on.
