Representatives from the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA)
attended a kickoff luncheon for the Know Your Rights! Program on
March 13 at Mintz Levin in Boston.
The statewide program educates leaders of nonprofit
organizations that focus on helping low-income women and their
families. Each month, experts teach participants about legal topics
that are relevant to the clients they serve. The guest speaker at
the kickoff event was Hon. Dina E. Fein, first justice of the
Housing Court, Western Division, and the special advisor for access
to justice initiatives.
The MBA recently joined the program as a partner and will film
the sessions, allowing nonprofits throughout the state to
participate through a webinar format. Other sponsoring
organizations are the Women's Bar Association and Women's Bar
Foundation of Massachusetts; the American Bar Association Section
of Individual Rights and Responsibilities; Mintz, Levin, Cohn,
Ferris, Glovsky and Popeo PC; One Family Inc.; and the South Asian
Bar Association of Greater Boston.
