Racial Justice Fellowship Conversation Series with A New Way of Life and the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley

October.15.2021

What does it mean to be an incarcerated mother and have your children taken from you? Why have the most vulnerable in our communities been the subject of evictions during this pandemic? And why are these issues so key to addressing systemic racial inequities in America?

In the second conversation of this three-part series with our Racial Justice Fellows and their host organizations who are working on the front lines, Chief Talent Officer Siobhan Handley spoke with Susan Burton, Founder of A New Way of Life and Brooke Heymach, Pro Bono Director of the Law Foundation of Silicon Valley, along with Orrick Fellows Andi Mazingo and Roza Patterson, about tackling systemic issues in family and housing law to support women and families facing poverty, discrimination, abuse and neglect by creating innovative solutions to these life-changing issues through policy change and grassroots efforts.
