RACIAL JUSTICE COUNCIL
20 WEEKS IN 2020 CHALLENGE 

The mission of the Bar Association and Foundation of Montgomery County, Maryland is to educate ourselves and others on racism, its many pervasive forms, policies, practices, and appearances which are ingrained and institutionalized in our community and society at large.  We will then use this education to actively challenge those policies and practices that continually result in inequitable outcomes and opportunities for people of color.
