Wednesday, June 16, 2021, 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Michael Ratner devoted four decades of his life at the Center for Constitutional Rights as a staff attorney, legal director, and board president until his untimely death in 2016. We miss him every day, but he left a powerful legacy. Not only did he handle some of the most significant human rights cases of his time, but he also lived and breathed the principles of radical lawyering.

Join Center for Constitutional Rights Executive Director Vince Warren, Legal Director Baher Azmy, former Center for Constitutional Rights Staff Attorney and Board Member Ellen Yaroshefsky, and Senior Staff Attorney and Associate Director of Legal Training and Education Rachel Meeropol as we discuss Michael Ratner’s just published autobiography Moving the Bar and reflect on his inspirational and indispensable lessons for the next generation of movement lawyers and activists. ASL and live transcription services will be provided.
