Lacroix Law, PC. presents the Black Legal Wellness Forum, free discussion about how the black community can better navigate legal issues across a variety of areas of law, Thursday, August 13, 2020, with a focus on Immigration Law.
At a time when so many people in this country are taking action and speaking out against the systemic racism that has led to many deaths of black and brown people, Lacroix Law thought about what they could do as a lawyers, to affect change. They realized that police brutality is just one factor of systemic racism. Racism is a power dynamic that affects many aspects of our lives including, but not limited to, how we interact with the law.
As lawyers, their job is to protect their clients from the pitfalls that the complexities of the legal system cause them to fall into. They have decided to put on a forum that addresses this and invites the community for a free discussion about how the black community can better navigate legal issues across a variety of areas of law. This forum is for the black community to better understand the ways in which these systems are not serving them, their rights under different areas of law, and ways that they can better protect and advocate for themselves when interacting with the law. We will have panelists in the areas of immigration, criminal law, estate planning, real estate, copyright/trademark, and employment.
Last month’s Black Legal Wellness Forum touched on a little bit of everything. Panelists discussed the areas of immigration, criminal law, estate planning, real estate, employment, and trademark/copyright as it relates to the black community, creating wealth, protecting wealth and assets, and protecting ourselves in legal matters. They only had a little time and barely touched the surface on black immigrants and the unique experience they have living in both an anti-black and xenophic America.
On Thursday, August 13th they will be expanding the conversation about the black immigrant experience and how the immigrant community can better navigate complications that arise in their immigration case. Racism doesn’t know the difference between Black American or Black Immigrant, and it’s time a discussion is had about the intersections between blackness and immigration status and how immigrants can protect themselves.
