Should I Start a Junior Associate’s Committee at My Law Firm?

Question: I am a junior associate in a mid-sized firm. For a variety of reasons, we are suffering an exodus of junior associates. Some juniors do not believe that the firm offers them a future.

Despite this, I am one of the true believers in this firm. I'd like to start a junior associates' committee so that we may address different issues facing us, and possibly solve them. Any guidelines that you may provide?
