Justice & Equality Task Force Taking Action

The KT Justice & Equality Task force is charged with providing guidance and making recommendations that support an active and holistic approach in our Firm, our communities and our legal system in the following areas:

  • Confronting racial injustice and inequality;

  • Providing meaningful anti-racist education; and

  • Addressing bias wherever it presents itself.

Internally, we have embarked on a comprehensive education program aimed at raising awareness, developing antiracist mindsets, and ultimately moving individuals from understanding to action. We will accomplish this through a series of anti-racism trainings, facilitated book club discussions, and resource guides. In addition, we have created the It Happened to Me video series chronicling our partners’ and employees’ real-life experiences with racism and other forms of discrimination.

Externally, we will make an impact through financial support of organizations that advocate for racial justice and equality as well as through coordinated volunteerism. In addition, we will continue our long-standing pro bono work addressing the systemic issues that have resulted in inequality in housing, education, voting, and criminal justice. Our lawyers have historically advocated against wrongful evictions, homelessness, disproportionate school discipline, voter suppression, substandard prison conditions, excessive criminal sentencing, and capital punishment.

Undergirding all of our work are the following Guiding Principles:

Justice ♦ Equality ♦ Empathy ♦ Safety ♦ Understanding

Racial injustice harms us all, not just those at whom it is directed.  Kilpatrick Townsend will do its part to achieve a more just and equitable society.
