FBA Pride in ADR


FBA Pride in ADR

Presented by the Federal Bar Association ADR and LGBTQ+ Law Sections

JAMS is a proud sponsor of the Federal Bar Association's first-ever Pride in ADR event. Pride in ADR is a celebration of the LGBTQIA+ communities’ availability, visibility, and selection as professionals in the field of alternative dispute resolution and a conversation about some of the challenges which persist as well as those which lay ahead. The Hon. Ana C. Reyes, U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, the first Hispanic woman and the first open LGBTQIA+ judge to be appointed to the D.C. federal district court, will keynote. A panel discussion will follow, featuring leading alternative dispute resolution practitioners. The event is in honor of Pride, celebrated annually in June, which commemorates the Stonewall Riots, but which also demonstrates, raises consciousness, and develops courage, dignity, and feelings of self-worth for a population which continues to face open hostility and discrimination in today’s society despite advancements in civil rights.
