The use of racial slurs diminishes the collective efforts of our community to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in our profession. APABA-DC remains committed to promoting diversity and inclusion across the legal profession in the DC area, and stands ready to work with law firms, legal departments, and law schools in achieving this vision.
