WILD Leadership - Wanton Injustice Legal Detail
Tuesday, August 25, 2020, 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM CST
Category: Working Groups

We know that our mission to attract, recruit, advance, and retain attorneys of color cannot be fulfilled unless we are committed to leveraging our power as attorneys to bring about greater justice and equity for Black people in the Twin Cities. We have invested years of work towards diversifying the legal profession in the Twin Cities. It is impossible to achieve this mission without investing the same energy in ensuring that the Twin Cities values Black lives. Not just the lives of the Black lawyers you know. Not just the work and contribution of Black lawyers. But ALL Black lives. 

Following the tragic killing of George Floyd, the Emerging Leaders Group (ELG) has stepped up with a plan to harness the collective power of the 60+ corporate law departments and law firms of Twin Cities Diversity in Practice to fight against the injustices faced by Black people in the Twin Cities. The Wanton Injustice Legal Detail (WILD) is uniting a coalition of attorneys from TCDIP’s Board of Directors, Members, and from the larger Twin Cities legal community to strategically work together to remedy systemic racism in all parts of our community.
