MFY Attorneys Selected for Groundbreaking Race-Equity Training

MFY Supervising Attorney Maia Goodell and Staff Attorney Karla Johnson are among 41 Fellows who have been selected to participate in the 2016 Racial Justice Training Institute, a national training program or the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law that builds the capacity of low-income people’s advocates to deploy up-to-date racial justice advocacy skills that address the role racism plays in causing and perpetuating poverty.  The six-month program is guided by the belief that an effective advocacy agenda must be driven by advocates immersed in their communities, who have fostered a sense of shared values with and deep understanding of their clients and partners.
