    Narrow the Wealth Gap: A Networking Event Presenting Pro Bono Opportunities in Economic Empowerment

    Sponsored by: D.C. Bar Estates, Trusts and Probate Law Community

    One of the greatest challenges the Biden-Harris administration is expected to face is narrowing the rapidly widening racial wealth gap, especially in light of the economic and social struggles accompanying COVID-19. This networking event will introduce various pro bono opportunities for the D.C. Bar community to further economic justice and provide attendees informal and vibrant small and large group discussion forums with breakout sessions to share their ideas, suggestions, and stories on how our legal community is working to narrow the wealth gap, and further diversity and inclusion. Perspectives and opportunities for service from thought leaders and those involved in financial literacy focused nonprofits, such as Powerful Progress, Wall Street Bound, and other organizations will also be provided. Marginalized communities have significantly lower incomes, and very limited access opportunities and access to creating intergenerational wealth. The 2019 Survey of Consumer Finances reported by the Federal Reserve indicated that wealth levels in communities of color are as much as eight times lower. This event brings together the legal community to explore ways in which we can further social impact and combat economic inequity. Non profits Powerful Progress and Wall Street Bound will be presenting, and check back for an updated list of organizations.

    Pre-registration for this program is required. As always, please feel free to share this invitation with colleagues. D.C. Bar membership is not required to attend.

    When: Tuesday, January 26th, 4:00pm-6:00pm EST

    Navigating a Successful Legal Career Path in the Financial Services Industry 

    SABA-DC and DLA Piper invite you to join us for a virtual panel in which lawyers in the financial services industry will provide their regulatory and policy insights and a high-level perspective on their career experiences. The financial services industry operates in a shifting technology, trade policy, political, and regulatory landscape. Banks, online payment systems, and fintech companies encounter a myriad of concerns that involve data privacy, consumer protection, sanctions, corruption, export controls, money laundering, terrorist financing, fraud/other financial crimes, digital currencies, national security (CFIUS), and other market- entry challenges, to name a few. Given these circumstances, it comes as no surprise that the financial services industry provides fertile and fascinating opportunities for legal practitioners.

    Stay-At-OM Virtual Yoga

    SABA-DC is excited to continue its Virtual Yoga Wellness Series! This session will be led by long-time SABA-DC member and former Board member Amrita Singh.

    Amrita is excited to lead this open level gentle flow class. Amrita obtained her yoga teaching certification in 2018, and since then has been sharing her practice with family and friends and through "Flow + Joe" - a community class she taught monthly on Saturday mornings at a local D.C. coffee shop. She is excited for the opportunity to create a space for SABA-DC members to take some time inward and focus on themselves with a slow flow class followed by a short meditation.  So start your weekend off right with a little yoga followed by some (home-brewed) coffee.

    SAVE THE DATE: Robert E. Wone Judicial Clerkship and Internship Conference

    The Robert E. Wone Judicial Clerkship and Internship Conference is an annual event that brings together judges and former clerks to provide minority law students information about clerkships and internships in a wide range of tribunals—appellate, trial, federal, state, and administrative. For over eighteen years, the Wone Conference has drawn a diverse group of law students from the D.C. area who are eager to gain a better understanding of what it means to be a judicial law clerk or intern. SABA-DC is proud to co-sponsor this event, alongside other minority bar associations, including AEF, APABA-DC, HBA-DC, and CAMBA.
