Loeb Aids Pro Bono Partner Law Firm Antiracism Alliance (LFAA)

Loeb & Loeb is proud to aid its pro bono partner the Law Firm Antiracism Alliance’s (LFAA) Reproductive Justice working group in completing the report “Abortion & Race: Why Abortion Bans and Restrictions Disproportionately Affect Black Women and People of Color,” which aims to promote awareness of racial inequity in reproductive healthcare. The tremendous effort was led by senior counsel and co-chair of LFAA’s Reproductive Justice working group Christina Hammervold, and included volunteers from Loeb and several other law firms. 

The 366-page document was disseminated to the Center for Reproductive Rights, If/When/How and other leading organizations that work collaboratively to promote reproductive justice and reproductive rights. As part of that effort, Loeb aims to provide a resource which will serve as a basis for legislative action and court filings across the country. 
The firm became a proud signatory to the LFAA in 2020 to join the effort to end systemic racism in the law and works with over 17 working groups at the alliance to advocate to change laws and policies that further racial injustice.

Loeb team members who participated in the effort include Corporate associates Stephanie Schmalz and Alexandra Murphy; Employment & Labor associate Lauren Williams; and Advanced Media & Technology paralegals Rebecca Red and Atea Stefani.
