who we are
We are a national collective of law students and young legal professionals, engaging in advocacy work from an intersectional feminist perspective to facilitate dialogue on issues relating to gender, diversity and inclusivity in law schools, the legal profession and the justice system. LNFB | DBFC is a feminist led, non-hierarchical, independent, non-partisan, and not-for-profit organization.
what we do
We aim to provide an inclusive platform to facilitate conversation about how to make our law schools, legal profession and justice system more diverse, inclusive and accessible. Our goal is to engage the public in a dialogue about the challenges facing individuals based on their gender identity in law today. We hope to amplify the voices of marginalized groups who have historically been excluded from the workings of law, particularly those who are racialized, indigenous, queer, trans, intersex, non-binary, and/or disabled.
how we will do this
We seek to accomplish these goals through creative mediums such as photo campaigns and storytelling, uniting at our national forum which rotates annually amongst law schools, and fostering relationships with those already engaging in feminist advocacy work, such as advocacy groups, community organizations, government bodies, law societies, and law firms. We are dedicated to providing positive legal education and fostering more opportunities for leadership and success in the legal profession for female identified and non-binary people.
