Amanda Wright To Serve On NCBA Task Force on Integration, Equity, and Equal Justice
Amanda Wright has been chosen to serve on the North Carolina Bar Association Force on Integration, Equity, and Equal Justice.
“It is important to me to serve on this task force because racism is deeply embedded in our legal system. As an agent and representative of this system, I have a duty to leverage my privilege and hold the system accountable for its past and present injustices. Equity and justice cannot be obtained without complete understanding, acknowledgement and accountability of the profession’s history and relationship with racism. Being a part of a task force that’s mission is to take actions to oppose racism in the legal profession is a step towards rectifying harm and moving towards an equitable future.” – Amanda Wright
