Culture, Current Events, and the Challenges of Overcoming the Barriers of Racism and Exclusion in Elder Law and Estate Planning
1.0 elimination of bias credit applied for
Discrimination, disenfranchisement, and systemic racism are lived realities and experiences for countless Minnesotans. For nearly 3 years, the state of Minnesota, particularly the Twin Cities has been the poster child for racial injustice, indigenous disparities and tensions between citizens, law enforcement and the legal system. This in addition to learning to navigate a post pandemic climate presents unique challenges for elder law professionals in your state. Overcoming these and other barriers and challenges while building rapport with your communities is very possible by learning from and through those you wish to serve.
