Owen Blank and Jarell Hunt have written an article on "Pro Bono for the Non-Litigator," published in the November issue of Multnomah Lawyer.

The connection between the lack of participation by these groups in business ownership and the ever-increasing income inequality in our nation is inescapable. Helping these businesses grow and succeed offers a way for non-litigators to enhance social justice.
