To the Sonoma County Bar President, the Bar Board and to all attorneys:
By David Berry, President, SCBA
An important goal for my term as SCBA President is opening a conversation about the role of race, gender and identity in the delivery of justice in Sonoma County. To forward that goal, the SCBA is forming a working committee focused on discussing these issues. The purpose of this article is to introduce the topic, and set a tone for respectful discussion of issues that can cause conflict, mistrust, and intense reactions.
