Legal Defense Fund Head: ‘Help Us Make Things Better’

Kevin Keenan, chief operating officer and legal counsel of the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (LDF), told the Y’s Men of Westport Weston today that racial problems in the United States are “like a damaged ecosystem.” The Swarthmore College and Yale Law School graduate challenged his audience to return to the “simple American heroism” of the time when people saw it as their “civic duty to fix things, to call out what others were ignoring, and to provide specific solutions to make things better.” He added, “That’s been LDF’s work for 75 years, but we can’t do it alone.” (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Larry Untermeyer for WestportNow.com
