Welcome to the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women

Lawyers Association 

Greetings GSCBWLA Family,

This piece of sage advice was shared by past president Detra at our Pathways to Partnership General Membership meeting last month. Sometimes we are committed to an idea, a job or even a relationship of any type that’s just not working. You are not growing. You are not thriving. It’s not a sign of defeat to change directions and go where you are better served. It’s actually part of self-care — we have to be honest about ourselves and our situation. If something is not serving our highest and greatest good, we need to let go in order for there to be space for the amazing development that is just around the corner. Things rarely go as planned in life. But the best part is, today is a new day. Whether you’ve experienced a setback or got off track, you can rededicate yourself to your goal. Whether it is self care, changing positions in your career, or helping on a campaign — you can do it. You can succeed. And I believe in you!

It was an honor to host a Sip and Shop with LEAP for Ladies this month. We heard powerful stories of how women have bounced back after incarceration. We heard hope and saw resilience. I’m looking forward to our Money Moves Webinar, and turning the reigns over to Brendalyn Edwards and the rest of our incoming 2019-2020 Board at our Installation on June 13. Hope to see you there!

In solidarity,

Melba V. Pearson, Esq.
