A Challenge to the Austin Legal Community from Howry, Breen & Herman

The Austin Bar recently received the following message from Randy Howry:

“The Austin law firm of Howry, Breen & Herman, LLP announces its donation of $5000 to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The events of this past week, particularly those in Charlottesville, Virginia, require  that we come together as a community and as a country to reinforce values that unite us—tolerance, inclusion and diversity. What occurred in Charlottesville, could have easily occurred in Austin. Racism, intolerance, and violence are always wrong. The equal treatment of all people is one of our country’s bedrock principles. There is no room for equivocation. Hate is wrong and it must be condemned. Left unchecked it can do great danger. We invite the Austin legal community to join in with a contribution to the organization of your choice. The time to sit, wait and watch is over.  As lawyers we are well positioned to insure that our local and national leaders hear our voices.”

Please consider joining Howry, Breen & Herman by donating to an organization of your choice. Some suggested groups are:
