Ken Connor

Chairman, Center for a Just Society
In 2005, Ken Connor founded the Center for a Just Society, where he serves as the organization’s Chairman. Connor is affiliated with the law firm of Connor & Connor, LLC, a firm nationally known for its successful representation of victims of nursing home abuse and neglect.  He served as Counsel to Governor Jeb Bush in Bush v. Schiavo, one of the country’s most watched cases in the long-running legal battle to protect a severely disabled woman, Terri Schindler Schiavo, from a court order to remove her feeding tube. Because of his advocacy on behalf of nursing home residents, the state’s Democratic Attorney General appointed him to Florida’s Task Force on the Availability and Affordability of Long Term Care.
