ABA President Stephen N. Zack Appoints HBA-DC Member Brian Castro to ABA Commission

Tuesday, May 3, 2011  
ABA 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.  

The 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.
