We stand with the Black community. We stand against racism and inequality. We believe that Black Lives Matter.<br/><br/>We are angry and profoundly sad over the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and the many others who have lost their lives to racist violence. We know that bigotry and systemic racism continue to deny Black people fundamental human rights and the respect and dignity that comes with them. We cannot ignore our country’s long history of racial injustice and we must take action to change the unequal treatment that permeates our society. As a Firm, we stand in solidarity with our team members and colleagues of color and we remain committed to advancing equity and inclusion within our organization and our communities.<br/><br/>What can we do now and into the future? We are expanding our pro bono work that impacts social justice reform. We are engaging in antiracist learning and Know Your Rights & Legal Observer training.  We are pledging $10,000 to the National Black Law Student Association in support of their work that increases the number of Black lawyers in this country who can effectuate change in our justice system. We are listening. We are learning. We are committed to the hard, necessary work that lies before us.


Racial Justice Task Force Mission Statement

 

Ice Miller is committed to identifying and dismantling structural and systemic racism in the law to promote racial equity. This work will be led by the Ice Miller Racial Justice Task Force whose mission is to amplify the legal rights and voices of people and communities of color to create an environment where opportunities in and access to the legal, social and economic systems are equitable. The Task Force will work toward carrying out this mission by:
 

  • Assisting and supporting grassroots organizations that have been working to eliminate the disparate treatment of minority populations in our communities.
  • Identifying and activating partnerships with established organizations fighting for racial justice.
  • Advocating for local and state policy reform in an effort to create communities that value and prioritize equitable treatment.
  • Committing Firm resources to assist with achieving racial justice.

Ice Miller deeply values all of the communities where we live, work and serve and strives to do our part to promote fairness and equality. The Task Force will be an extension of this core principle.
