Join FACL BC’s Advocacy Committee for Intersections of Racial and Gender Justice: What Lawyers Need to Know. This event is aimed at legal professionals and focused on exploring how to take racial and gender justice into account while serving clients. 

Join us as we explore barriers and issues that clients might face in relation to their intersecting identities and marginalization based on gender and race, and what legal professionals should keep in mind while providing services. The event will include a panel discussion followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
