The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law is one of the leading national civil rights legal organizations, with the principal mission of fighting racial discrimination faced by African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities. The Lawyers’ Committee was formed in 1963 at the request of President John F. Kennedy to enlist the private bar’s leadership and resources in combating racial discrimination and the resulting inequality of opportunity – work that continues to be vital today.
The national Lawyers’ Committee has committed to using communications as a central tool in its work to advance its mission and goals. Social media and digital advocacy will be a part of a renewed emphasis for the Committee and its work now and in the future.
