We are pleased to welcome our keynote speaker, Solicitor General Noah Purcell, who argued before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in the lawsuit over President Donald Trump’s  rst immigration executive order.

Breaking Down the Silos: Aligning Our Equity and Justice Work Ballroom C/D
While we’re all committed to equity and justice work, we can often settle into our silos and end up inadvertently missing opportunities for partnering with organizations who have a shared vision, leveraging our work especially when there are limited resources, and leaving it to our client communities to navigate the maze of getting legal help. A Ted Talk style panel of the following speakers will call us to action to break down the following silos:
• Civil/Criminal: Francis Adewale, Public Defender, City of Spokane
• Urban/Rural: Lori Isley, Directing Attorney, Working Families Project at Columbia Legal Services
• Conservative/Liberal: Professor John McKay, Chair of Government Investigations and Crisis Management, Davis
Wright Tremaine, and Professor from Practice, Seattle University School of Law
• Nontraditional Partners/Usual Suspects: Carla Lee, Deputy Chief of Staff, King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Of ce
• Non-Legal Community Organizations/Legal Organizations: Mirya Muñoz-Roach, Chief Program Director, Society of St.
Vincent de Paul of Seattle and Access to Justice Board Member
• Moderator: Michele Storms, Deputy Director, American Civil Liberties Union of Washington
The panel will be followed by small group discussions focused on taking practical steps to breaking down the silos and aligning for more effective equity and justice work.
