NEWS AND EVENTS
The Arc of Justice Institute recently received a Fellows grant from the Georgia Bar Foundation. The $5,000 award will go towards the Hidden Legal Figures series, which helps educate the general public on the role of lawyers and judges in the Civil Rights movement. "We are incredibly proud to receive a Fellows Award from the Georgia Bar Foundation," noted Derrick Alexander Pope, J.D., AJI President and Managing Director. "This award will help us share the stories of the lawyers who gave the advice, handled the cases, and mastered the legal strategies that have shaped our nation for the better. Learning about them can be an invaluable source of education and inspiration, both of which are presently in diminishing supply."
