Join the U.S. District Court and the Indiana State Bar Association at the Indianapolis Federal Courthouse on Friday, October 11, at 2:00 pm to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. We will welcome Ms. Sylvia Mendez, who, as a nine-year-old girl, participated in a landmark legal battle to desegregate California public schools. The case, Mendez v. Westminster, preceded Brown v. Board of Education by seven years and laid the groundwork for national desegregation in education. Ms. Mendez is a recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and will speak about her lifelong efforts to fight for educational equality. She will be joined by Judge Jose Salinas of the Marion Superior Court, who will examine the legal aspects of the Mendez case. The event is free but registration is required. One hour of CLE credit is pending approval. Please view the Press Release for full details.
