Welcome to the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women
Greetings Gwen Cherry Family,
As we begin the month of
February and our celebration of Black History Month, it is important that we
reflect on the accomplishments of the past. However, we also need to make
sure we are pouring into others and the next generation of those who will fight
for justice. This could include mentoring law students, educating diverse
communities on their rights, or supporting the younger attorneys of color in
your office. We have a long way to go in terms of diversity in big
firms -- this is an area where we can all pull together for change.
Our fight for diversity on the bench continues. The JDI continues its
work with a new administration in highlighting the many well qualified
attorneys of color in the pipeline for appointment.
Melba V. Pearson, Esq.
