The Baltimore County Bar Association’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee invites you to join “The Challenge”, a 21-week commitment to learn and educate willing participants regarding systemic inequalities in the legal system and generally. Beginning in March 2021, the Diversity and Inclusion Committee will circulate articles or videos to all participants related to racism, social injustice, or bias on a weekly basis. Monthly meetings facilitated by the Association of Black Psychologists and licensed social workers will be held for all Challenge participants to discuss and distill the past month’s educational materials. These monthly debriefings shall serve as an opportunity to educate or members and answer questions in a safe environment. Materials and Zoom links will be sent out by the BCBA weekly starting on March 3, 2021.
