The South Asian Bar Association of Washington (SABAW) aims to pair law students and young lawyers with mentor attorneys.

For mentors and mentees alike, this is a fantastic opportunity to support one another, learn from one another, and meet the movers and shakers of our profession. Our networks tend to be South Asian and Middle Eastern lawyers, but participants from any and all backgrounds are most welcome to join us!

Community Speaks: Help shape the future of the Seattle Office for Civil Rights (various dates, locations)

Seattle Office for Civil RightsThe Seattle Office for Civil Rights is hosting a series of “Community Speaks” events in effort to work together in rebuilding the office so that it is accountable to you and your community. We are here to learn what role you wish we could play in your community, how we can build an accountable relationship with your community, and what your community’s biggest barriers are where we can provide support. This information will be included in a larger report to City Council to determine what changes need to occur to the Office for Civil Rights. City Council will consider the recommendations from this report and make any necessary changes to the department.
