ABA President Stephen N. Zack Appoints HBA-DC Member Brian Castro to ABA Commission
Tuesday, May 3, 2011
President Stephen N. Zack appointed Brian Castro to the ABA
Presidential Commission on Hispanic Legal Rights and Responsibilities
Advisory Committee. Brian is Chairperson of the HBA-DC's Legislative
Issues & Policy Committee.
The Commission is tasked with
examining the issues that impact the Latino community through the lens
of the Latino experience. This examination will help determine where
there are points of intersection with and application to other groups
who are experiencing discrimination in the United States. The end goal
is to determine how the ABA can continue to pursue and improve upon its
commitment to righting the wrongs of discrimination.
Commission is conducting regional hearings throughout the United
States. The resulting information will be gathered into a final report
along with recommendations that can be used to draft ABA policy and as a
guide for Congressional and presidential administration policymakers.
