Jeannie Rhee Featured in Washington Lawyers’ Committee “Partner Spotlight”
May 22, 2023
The Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights & Urban Affairs (WLC) has spotlighted litigation partner Jeannie Rhee for her public service and private practice achievements, and her pro bono dedication and leadership. The website profile highlights Jeannie’s work, alongside WLC and the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, in a groundbreaking lawsuit against the Proud Boys and its leader for a racist attack on a historic Black church in D.C., among other impactful civil rights cases.
“To me, fighting for justice and safeguarding the rule of law are an essential part of my ethical responsibilities as an attorney. But the racist attack by the Proud Boys on the Metropolitan A.M.E. Church over the church’s support for the Black Lives Matter movement also felt deeply personal to me as an immigrant of color,” Jeannie says. “While I have been embraced by this country and have built a successful legal career here, I’m deeply troubled by the increase in hate-driven violence.”
Jeannie is a member of the board of WLC, a nonprofit organization that works to advance justice in the areas of housing, employment, education, criminal legal system reform, equitable access to public accommodations and immigration.
