If you're keeping up with our Hornraiser, we are so grateful that you care about this step to propel equality for women of color within the legal field. It is our first week in and we are excited to announce that we have raised already 6% of our fundraising goal!
Why this is important: Women of color students in law school report a sense of isolation, exclusion from the best study groups, a lack of role models, disparate treatment by professors, and heightened objectification and sexual harassment at networking events. Our research will make a profound impact to change this experience, and by donating, you, too, are advancing this goal.
We have 24 days left to go. Please continue to spread the word about this fundraiser and its mission.
