Welcome to the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association 

Greetings GSCBWLA Members and Supporters:

"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth." ~ Muhammad Ali

Black women have been at the forefront of servant leadership for centuries. Leading the way from the Underground Railroad, the suffrage movement, voting rights, to the current day civil rights movements. There are many out there doing the hard work of leading and doing the right thing. Sometimes even getting into "good trouble."

A leader serves others and their community selflessly. In the spirit of recognizing phenomenal leadership in the legal community, the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association requests the nominations of those young attorneys that go above and beyond in their service to others. We want to nominate an exemplary young attorney that provides outstanding contributions to those needing legal services for the YLD Pro Bono Award. 


Nakia Ruffin, Esq.
