Laurel Bellows, ABA President:
The Fight for Liberty, Equality and Justice

American Bar Association President

Nationwide, our courts are withering – starved for adequate funding. Meanwhile, there are more than 100,000 people in the United States who are forced to provide sex and labor services for their captors’ profits. And according to some estimates, women continue to earn just 77 cents for every dollar that men earn. Come listen to one of the nation’s top legal voices, ABA President Bellows, speak about these issues and possible solutions.
