Legacy of Civil Rights Leadership
Honored at Appreciation Luncheon

Kimberly Thomas Rapp and Clarence B. Jones

On Friday, March 15, 2013, Lawyers' Committee Board members, George H. Brown, Pamela Y. Price and Rohit Singla, co-hosted a luncheon at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP in honor of former leaders of the organization's Board of Directors. 

The event featured Clarence B. Jones, respected lawyer, and famed speechwriter, personal counsel and close friend of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in conversation with Executive Director, Kimberly Thomas Rapp

During this interactive discussion, attendees engaged in dialogue reflecting on the continuing relevance of the Committee's mission to advance and defend civil rights law.The wide-ranging conversation considered many current challenges to civil rights including recent attempts to thwart hard fought voting rights and why comprehensive immigration reform should matter to all civil rights and social justice advocates. 

Over the past 45 years, the Lawyers' Committee has benefitted from a strong legacy of leadership in the fight for justice and equality. We salute our Board Co-Chairs who continue to stay the course and set an example for the next generation of civil rights lawyers.

“I believe the three most important civil rights issues for lawyers today are income inequality, voting rights protection, and gun violence.”
