“Our fight against social inequality is based on solid values, such as education and physical activity, but we cannot win this battle unless the rights of each and every person are respected. Racism has no legal basis or grounds in any of its forms.”

Nancy Leggett-Bachand, Executive Director, Justice Pro Bono (www.justiceprobono.ca):
Justice Pro Bono mobilizes the legal community to provide time and expertise to individuals and non-profit organizations in Québec that lack the necessary resources to access legal services.  We’re now a few days from the event and already we have reached close to full capacity.
