Connie Rice is a civil rights lawyer and co-director of Los Angeles' The Advancement Project, fights inequality and injustice in today’s society to achieve high impact policy change. Nationally, The Advancement Project provides training, networking, and resources to extend racial justice lawyering. Furthermore, Rice and her team use strategic methods of communication to influence the public opinion on issues of race and injustices.
