“A commitment to diversity is among WilmerHale’s guiding principles. Diversity influences how we recruit our lawyers and staff, the type of pro bono cases we undertake, and the philanthropic endeavors we pursue in the community. Diversity makes us better lawyers and advocates.”
"EJS and our allies are fighting to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline in places such as Bakersfield where Black and Latino students and families in Bakersfield are the targets of excessive school discipline practices because of the color of their skin. When we started EJS in 2000, our mission was to put race back on the table. Now that we're talking about race, we want to transform America's understanding of race and racism so that we can all be a part of moving this country forward."
