Welcome to the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association 

Greetings GSCBWLA Members and Supporters:

Welcome 2022!

This year began with Getting Your House in Order, the Miami Virtual Edition. On January 20th, we will discuss Understanding the Racial Wealth Gap. Let us also begin this year renewed, mindful, and committed to self-care. Please join us for our General Membership Meeting and CLE on January 23rd for yoga and meditation on the beach. The South Florida Legal Mentoring Picnic will be held on February 5th. Please volunteer to help the day run smoothly.

We are excited to announce Better Days, a collaboration between GSCBWLA and the the Center for Family and Child Enrichment, Inc., that will support teenage girls in the foster care system. The Better Days program will provide support for the girls through donations, educational enrichment, health and wellness events, and mentoring.

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s legacy, we remain committed to striving daily for racial, social, and economic justice.

In Service,

Nakia Ruffin, Esq.

GSCBWLA President
