Chambers Center lawyers present at Carol Woods

The Forum for Peace and Justice Committee of the Carol Woods Chambers Retirement Community in Chapel Hill hosted “Community Civil Rights Lawyering at Ground Zero,” a presentation by Elizabeth Haddix and Mark Dorosin on the mission, vision and work of the Julius Chamber Center for Civil Rights. The talk detailed the Chambers Center’s multifaceted approach to dismantling structural racism through litigation and advocacy, research, community outreach, and training the next generation of civil rights lawyers. Elizabeth and Mark also described some of the Center’s recent successes and ongoing matters, including the annexation of the formerly excluded Walnut Tree community in Stokes County, the landmark Title VI environmental justice settlement with the Department of Environmental Quality regarding its permitting of industrial swine operations, and the ongoing Halifax County school equity and segregation case now pending at the North Carolina Supreme Court.

We look forward to continuing to partner with our friends at Carol Woods and appreciate their tireless dedication and commitment to civil rights and social justice.
