MTLA Statement regarding social justice and racial inequalities. 
6/22/2020

With the truly shocking loss of George Floyd’s life, the all-consuming global pandemic was pushed aside in our daily lives to focus on deep-seated racial prejudice in our country. The Maine Trial Lawyers Association’s (MTLA) leadership recognizes that black lives are at risk in ways that others are not.  Together with our national affiliate the American Association for Justice (AAJ), we stand resolute against police misconduct, brutality, and systemic racism.  Right now, we urge our fellow attorneys to uphold and defend the constitutional and other rights of those wronged, stand up for freedom of speech, and petition our local, state, and federal governments for redress of grievances. We also ask members to consider offering pro bono and reduced rate representation to people who need us most right now and to get involved in an organization dedicated to social change. We are committed to listening to our membership and others about how the MTLA can help address systemic injustices, increase cultural competence, and assist with the healing process in our communities during this difficult time. In the coming months the MTLA Board of Governors is committed to present not just a statement condemning these wrongs, but concrete steps that we can take as an organization to improve our judicial system and our communities. To that end, we have created a committee of our board members to immediately begin this work.
