Honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Resources on the Role of Race in Administrative Law, by Jill Family and Brandi Williamson

As we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and we look toward Black History Month, we are reminded that we all have a role to play in making a more just society.  As Dr. King wrote from the Birmingham, Alabama jail, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”

The search for justice includes administrative law. As the ABA Section of Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice, we are committed to the journey. Here are some section resources that address the role of race in administrative law:
