Raymond M. Brown, partner at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, is participating in New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education webinar, “Juneteenth - More than Just a Holiday - Learning from our History and Fortifying our Future” presented by the Minorities in the Profession Section of the New Jersey State Bar Association. The webinar will be held on June 15, 2021 from 12:00-1:00 P.M. Pre-registration is required, but the webinar is free for NJSBA members and Affinity Bar members. This program has been approved for 1.2 credits (50 minute hour), including 1.2 diversity and inclusion credit.
“Juneteenth is recognized as a day of reflection about an extended history of injustice and enslavement against African Americans. Last year, after a series of high-profile, violent acts against African Americans, we saw an increased acknowledgment of the critical importance of this holiday, particularly within the legal field and profession. This program aims to expand the movement toward education of the history of confrontations that African Americans have overcome, as well as foster discussion regarding ways that we, as legal professionals, can continue to battle the injustices against African Americans.”
The panel will be moderated by Kenya Tyson (Assistant Provost, Academic Affairs & University Curriculum at The New School). Panelists include:
- Raymond M. Brown (Partner, Pashman Stein Walder Hayden)
- Paula Edgar (attorney and CEO of PGE Consulting Group LLC, a strategy firm providing DEI and professional development solutions)
- Cliff Dawkins (Assistant Dean and Director of Minority Student Program, Rutgers University)
- Cedric Ashley (Coach, Author, Speaker, & Attorney)
- Nasheena Porter (Special Deputy Attorney General/Acting Assistant Prosecutor, Chief Diversity Equity and Inclusion Officer, Union County Prosecutor's Office)
