PHILADELPHIA–“On behalf of the Defender Association of Philadelphia, I want to extend my deepest condolences to the family of Amber M. Racine, whose passing we are all mourning today.
“Amber Racine was more than a brilliant lawyer. She was committed to the idea that communities of color need and deserve quality legal representation. As the president of the Barristers, she consistently demonstrated this commitment in her pro-bono legal work for those who couldn’t otherwise afford an attorney.
“I and others who knew and were inspired by Amber Racine will honor her memory and legacy by continuing to represent the marginalized communities she cared so deeply for.”
