Black History Month

We proudly celebrate the diverse cultural backgrounds of our lawyers and staff every day of the year. This month, MoFo is hosting celebrations across our U.S. offices to commemorate Black History Month. The various events and activities will focus on the theme, “Ordinary People Doing Extraordinary Things.”

On February 3, civil rights leader Barbara Arnwine will join us in our Washington, D.C. office for a look at “Courage and Conviction in Our Times: The Historic and Present Role of Lawyers in the Fight for Voting Rights.”

On February 10, Dr. Osagie Obasogie will give a presentation in our San Francisco office about the research that contributed to his award-winning book, Blinded by Sight: Seeing Race Through the Eyes of the Blind.

On February 16, our San Francisco office will host a panel discussion about voting rights and voter suppression, featuring Henry A. Brown, MoFo’s director of attorney training; Christina Livingston, executive director of Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment; and Robert Rubin, senior counsel, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, and director of the Voting Rights Institute.

Be sure to visit us throughout the month for highlights from our celebration of the extraordinary things achieved by ordinary people.
