In his 1959 classic Man’s Search for Meaning, Viktor Frankl wrote that “man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is being asked.” These times ask much of us. The women and men of IAALSand our stakeholders and friendsare answering in meaningful ways. This newsletter provides a snapshot of some of that work in action. Together, they sound IAALS’ enduring notes in our plastic times: imagining access to justice, broadly scaled; hearing the voices of people and organizations who experience the American justice system; seeking and understanding data; and convening disparate interests to resolve problems.

IAALS looks forward to a fall with many events, all centered on our mission. We’re excited to announce that our annual Rebuilding Justice Award Celebration will be held virtually this October. Postponed since April, the event will honor this year’s awardees, Margaret Hagan and the late Chief Justice Mark Cady, for their leadership and innovation in the movement toward user-centric reforms in family courts—leading to better pathways for families nationwide. Stay tuned for more information soon.

IAALS continues to adapt to our new realities. Going virtual has brought hundreds of participants to our recent events, and we’re thrilled to bring even more supporters and friends—new and old—to our award celebration this fall. We hope you’ll join us!
