Frequently Asked Quetions

What is the Community Center?

AAJ is transitioning to a new and much improved community platform for list servers and document libraries in the Summer of 2020. This online Community Center serves as a single point to manage your AAJ list servers and connect with the other members of your groups.

The email addresses for AAJ's list servers changed during this transition. We apologize in advance for any confusion this causes.

Why the change?

The new platform was selected based on member suggestions for how to best make content available for member groups. It will improve your ability to read and respond to discussions online, search the discussion archives and retrieve past attachments, change your list server settings, read newsletters, and view the document libraries. These features will be rolled out over the next several months.

What is an Allowlist?

An allowlist is a list of email addresses or domains from which you want to receive emails. By adding an address or domain to your allowlist, you are telling your email system not to filter email from that address or domain. This is the first and most critical step to take to ensure you receive your list server messages. 

You will likely need to work with your IT department or vendor. Please ask them to add the domain connectedcommunity.org to your organization's "allowlist."

For additional help, contact listmanager@justice.org.

What was the beta test?

The Civil Rights Section, Trucking Litigation Group, Class Action Litigation Group, LGBT Caucus, and Medmal forum, were selected to get early access to the platform.  These groups were the 'beta testers' for the community platform and provided valuable feedback.  Thank you, beta groups!
