Office of Equity & Diversity
On May 15, 2014, nearly 300 MPS high school students participated in an event, Legacy of Courage and Freedom: Dred and Harriet Scott, sponsored by the Federal Bar Association and the Twin Cities minority bar associations. The students heard inspiring messages from a distinguished panel of judges and attorneys who shared their personal and professional stories about how they achieved their dreams. The panel was moderated by Chief Judge Michael J. Davis, U.S. District Court of Minnesota.
