The following resource is designed for programs working with pro bono attorneys and legal advocates in Washington State. Our goal is to provide a starting point for volunteers seeking to understand and practice key concepts related to race equity and anti-bias work. The resources offered below and companion video guides to follow cover the role of attorneys as stewards of racial justice, the intersection of racism and poverty, strategies for addressing implicit bias and internalized racism, and mechanisms for improving client interactions through a multicultural and anti-racist approach. The content provided can be offered and shared as a stand-alone resource for pro bono attorneys, though Appendix A also outlines how pro bono coordinators and programs can utilize the curriculum and companion materials to host customized trainings. We acknowledge that programs differ with respect to resources, bandwidth, geography, practice area, and focus but offer these materials as a foundation that can be used and adapted freely to fit the unique context of local communities and specific programs.
