Legal Services of Eastern Missouri has three Advocates selected as 2021 National Race Equity Fellows for Racial Justice Institute

Leaders to Join Network of Advocates Advancing Racial Justice Across the Country

St. Louis (May 6, 2021) – The Shriver Center on Poverty Law recently announced 47 Fellows, including Legal Services of Eastern Missouri’s staff members Earlene Bolton, Katherine Holley and Amanda Schneider, have been selected to take part in its 2021 Racial Justice Institute (RJI), a leadership program that equips and coordinates anti-poverty advocates to affirmatively advance racial equity.

“The past year has laid bare systemic inequities that many members of our community face daily,” said Dan Glazier, Legal Services Executive Director and General Counsel.  “We are gratified that Earlene, Katherine and Amanda have all been selected for this incredible opportunity to bolster our advocacy with the core principles of race equity.”

This year’s RJI Fellows include a diverse group of public interest lawyers, legal aid attorneys, community advocates, executive leaders, and even a judge. They come from 16 organizations advancing justice in 10 states, including 11 organizations new to the RJI.

“The COVID-19 pandemic and economic crisis, combined with the racial reckoning during the past year, have exposed racial disparities experienced daily in the communities that anti-poverty advocates serve,” said Kimberly Merchant, Director of the Racial Justice Institute and Network. “The Racial Justice Institute equips these advocates to take a strategic, direct approach to eliminating racial disparities, dismantling barriers to opportunity, and strengthening communities of color.”

The 2021 Fellows come to the Racial Justice Institute with experience in a wide range of advocacy areas, including criminal justice reform, healthcare, second chance opportunities, economic justice, disability justice, immigrants’ rights, and affordable housing. Under the intensive seven-month RJI program that begins in May, the 2021 Fellows will be exposed to a core set of racial equity concepts that they can apply to the advocacy in which they are currently engaging.

“This year’s Fellows are working with communities facing many systemic challenges, including individuals experiencing discrimination in the criminal justice system, people with disabilities facing intersectional issues and discrimination, and families of color harmed by the child welfare system,” said Janerick Holmes, Associate Director of the Racial Justice Institute and Network. “RJI will offer these Fellows a framework to contextualize structural racism, systems thinking, social cognition, and implicit bias that they can use to confront and impact racial disparities in the communities they serve.”

Earlene Bolton is the outreach coordinator for Legal Services’ Connecting Kids to Coverage program, and has expertise in Medicaid outreach and enrollment.  A staff attorney in Legal Services’ public benefits program, Katherine Holley has developed important community partnerships while conducting food stamp outreach to able-bodied adults.  Amanda Schneider manages Legal Services’ Health Justice Initiative/Education Justice Project, which works to address the root causes of inequities in health and education, and doing community outreach with a racial equity lens.

Together, Earlene, Kate and Amanda, with the support of the RJI program, hope to advance health equity in Missouri by increasing the enrollment of Black men—a group with historically low rates of health coverage—in Missouri’s Medicaid program.

Entering its eighth year, the Shriver Center’s Racial Justice Institute has cultivated nearly 300 advocates, representing over 90 organizations in 31 states and the District of Columbia. Fellows emerge from the program ready to help shape policies that support a more racially just society and continue to work in concert as part of the Shriver Center’s Racial Justice Institute Network.

Association of Corporate Counsel – St. Louis Chapter Participates in 2021 Street Law Program

St. Louis (April 14, 2021) – The Association of Corporate Counsel – St. Louis Chapter (ACC STL) participated in the 2021 Street Law Program, a global, non-partisan and nonprofit organization through which local attorneys volunteer to educate youth about matters related to law and government. This year, the event was held virtually March 8-11 with 45 KIPP St. Louis Public School students and 11 ACC STL members who volunteered to lead the discussions.

Since 2012, the ACC STL Diversity & Inclusion Committee has directed the Street Law Program for the St. Louis Chapter. Street Law is a diversity pipeline program, designed to expose students from a local high school (whose students include virtually all racial and ethnic backgrounds underrepresented in the legal profession) to the practice of law in a way that will encourage them to consider legal careers and pursue higher education. Chapter members participating in the program, in teams of two or three members, teach an interactive session on an area of the law at the participating high school class.

“Street Law provides students with an insight into the legal profession which they may not otherwise have. The ACC STL believes it is important because this introduction provides students with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to understand the legal profession and how to advocate for themselves and others,” said Geoffrey Grammer, Chairperson for the 2021 Law Street Program and Corporate Counsel, Ameren Corporation.

The 2021 Street Law sponsor was Alaris (https://alaris.us/).
