In this session, we will have a conversation with Kristen Clarke about how the Department of Justice, through the courts and the legal system, tries to make the USA a fairer and more just society for all. Assistant Attorney General Kristen Clarke leads the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division to uphold the civil and constitutional rights of all who live in the USA. Kristen Clarke began her career in public service fighting for voting rights and election laws, to ensure that all Americans are represented in elections and in government. Under her leadership, the Civil Rights Bureau for the New York State Attorney General’s Office secured landmark agreements with banks to address unlawful redlining, employers to address barriers to reentry for people with criminal backgrounds, police departments on reforms to policies and practices, major retailers on racial profiling of consumers, landlords on discriminatory housing policies, school districts concerning issues relating to the school-to-prison pipeline and more. In 2015, Ms. Clarke was named the president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, one of the nation’s leading civil rights organizations founded at the request of John F. Kennedy. There, she led the organization’s legal work in courts across the country addressing some of the nation’s most complex racial justice and civil rights challenges.
