BCBA Board of Governors’ Statement of Solidarity
The Butte County Bar Association Board of Governors strongly condemns racism and bigotry engaged in by any person, entity, or government. As attorneys, our duty is to seek justice for our clients. In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Our responsibility is to lead by example and to stand resolute against the evil of racial inequality. Our Constitution demands equal justice for all and we, as attorneys, must tirelessly work towards this mission.
The BCBA also supports the constitutional right of the people to peaceably assemble to make their voices heard and those who seek to influence the government to make meaningful changes in law and policy. The BCBA, however, condemns those opportunists who commit acts of violence, property damage, and theft.
We pledge to listen to those discriminated against, to learn how we can make a meaningful difference, and to act to promote positive change in the justice system. In addition to asking our members to do whatever we can as individuals to ensure justice for our clients and others in the community, we invite our interested members to join the BCBA’s Racial and Social Justice Committee (RSJC). The RSJC works to uphold the values of diversity, social justice, and equality in our community. The Butte County Legal Profession values diversity, social justice and equality. The Racial and Social Justice Committee of the BCBA is determined to be ever vigilant in upholding these values.
