AAJ stands resolute against police misconduct, brutality, and systemic racism. Recent tragic and senseless deaths have us feeling sadness, pain, and outrage as we mourn for the Floyd family and the countless others who have suffered.

I am proud that AAJ members Ben Crump and Tony Romanucci are leading the fight for the Floyd family, along with other AAJ members on their trial teams. Ben and Tony will join us on June 16 for a complimentary AAJ Education webinar on representing victims and their families in police misconduct cases. To register, please call AAJ Education at (800) 622-1791 or email education@justice.org. For more information, visit justice.org/PoliceMisconductWebinar
