Join ACS and Alec Karakatsanis for an exciting discussion about Equal Justice Under the Law, a non-profit organization that provides pro bono legal services to those most in need, focusing on the systemic issues that create unjustifiable inequalities. Equal Justice brings cases across the United States, engaging in litigation and advocacy to reform the structures, norms, and incentives that create and perpetuate violations of fundamental rights. Alec Karakatsanis, Co-Founder of Equal Justice and a 2008 graduate of Harvard Law School, will be discussing his journey in the public interest field and how he decided to dedicate his legal life to helping those most in need.
