I will be attending the 2010 Equal Justice Conference along with others from South Carolina. While there has been a lot of controversy surrounding the conference due to Arizona’s recent immigration legislation, the conference brings together a lot of impressive minds working toward equal justice for all. I look forward to reporting to you some of the innovations and ideas that come out of the conference.
