Much Proudly Joins Law Firm Antiracism Alliance

Much is now a proud member of the Law Firm Antiracism Alliance (LFAA), an organization that works for systemic change and racial equity in the law. LFAA facilitates the coordination of its alliance firms to use the law as a vehicle for change that benefits underserved and oppressed communities.

The firm previously represented LFAA in filing an amicus brief in the Supreme Court about an issue involving Jim Crow measures used to disenfranchise Black jurors. The brief argues that the Supreme Court should address the question of whether Ramos v. Louisiana, which held that non-unanimous jury verdicts are unconstitutional, should be applied retroactively.

Steve Blonder, who led the recent work with LFAA and also serves as chair of the firm's social responsibility initiative, Much Community, said, “We’re proud to join the nearly 300 Alliance firms working together to address systemic racism in the law. It’s our privilege and our responsibility to continue working for the rights of marginalized people.”
