The EJLE Initiative brings together the law enforcement community, the prosecutorial and defense bars, former offenders and the public by further engaging the legal community to provide additional resources to lessen the potential for discriminatory policing practices and uphold the civil and constitutional rights of every citizen, while also supporting the outstanding work, dedication, and sacrifice of our law enforcement community.
Check back on our website for information on upcoming events and to find out how you can get involved.
As part of the Equal Justice in Law Enforcement Initiative set forth by President Harold Franklin, the Atlanta Bar Association is recruiting volunteers to go to public high schools and share information that will educate students throughout metro Atlanta about their Fourth Amendment Constitutional Rights. Volunteers will be equipped to speak through a brief orientation session and will receive talking points and materials.
Volunteers can participate within a presentation group and/or can speak individually to high school classes for sessions lasting from one hour to two hours. To volunteer, contact Mariana Pannell at firstname.lastname@example.org with the date(s) and time(s) for which you are available. More dates will be made available in the future.
