... for joining us October 28, 2021 for the encore presentation of Justice Eileen Moore's "Race Results" program. Her use of Hollywood film clips and U.S. Supreme Court cases over the decades to examine the treatment of African Americans by Hollywood and the High Court was enlightening and informative!

On September 21, 2021, OCAAJO co-sponsored the OCBA's Racial Justice Task Force, Diversity & Inclusion Committee and Affiliate Bar Associations' Webinar on Intersectionality: Personal Stories of Navigating Implicit Bias & Solutions. The Panel featured OCAAJO President, Judge Karen L. Robinson, Vice President, Judge Elizabeth Macias and Member at Large, Judge Tam Nomoto Schumann Ret.
