2018 CRSJ Fall Council Meeting
The American Bar Association's Section of Civil Rights and Social Justice's Fall meeting in Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma, Alabama was an incredibly powerful experience that I will forever cherish. As an African-American woman lawyer, I was overjoyed to have the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of what my ancestors endured so that I could become who I am today. I continue to be inspired by the thoughtful leadership and vision of the ABA CRSJ Chair, Wilson Schooley and it was such a treat to have the illustrious ABA President-Elect Judy Perry Martinez join us for the meeting. I am honored to serve on the ABA CRSJ Council.
