The Supreme Court Can’t Wish Away Racial Inequality
Dear HNBA member and supporters,
Earlier this year, the HNBA filed a Supreme Court amicus brief, in the rehearing of Fisher v. University of Texas, ("Fisher II"), a case involving the importance of diversity in higher education. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments for that case today, and their eventual decision will have major ramification for race-conscious policies in college and law school admissions programs. To learn more about what is at stake in the Fischer II case, read the op-ed from HNBA's National President Robert T. Maldonado in today's The Hill. And as always feel free to share on Facebook and Twitter!
About the Hispanic National Bar Association
The Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) is an incorporated, not-for-profit, national membership association that represents the interests of Hispanic attorneys, judges, law professors, legal assistants, law students, and legal professionals in the United States and its territories. Since 1972, the HNBA has acted as a force for positive change within the legal profession by creating opportunities for Hispanic lawyers and by helping generations of lawyers to succeed. The HNBA has also effectively advocated on issues of importance to the national Hispanic community. While we are proud of our accomplishments, we are mindful that our mission is as vital today as it was four decades ago, especially as the U.S. Hispanic population continues to grow.
