Legal Activism: How the Legal Community Can Promote Social Change

In North Texas, the legal community is one of the many groups committed to promoting positive social change. The goal of investing in and improving our community was at the heart of last week’s event, “Legal Activism: What We Can Do in the Legal Community to Promote Positive Social Change,” presented by United Way Women of Tocqueville, a United Way of Metropolitan Dallas giving society.

The virtual event included a special conversation with Judge LaDoris Hazzard Cordell (retired) highlighting her work with social activism and her career spent breaking race and gender barriers. Her inspiring words were followed by a discussion on how to create change within North Texas with John Creuzot, Dallas County district attorney, and Sandra Phillips Rogers, group vice president, general counsel, chief legal officer and chief diversity officer for Toyota Motor North America.
