President's Message: Jessica Kronstadt
Thank you to everyone who attended and made WLALA’s 2020 Awards Dinner such a success. Congratulations again to Hon. Virginia Phillips
(Ernestine Stahlhut Awardee), UCLA Health
and Johnese Spisso
(Myra Bradwell Awardee), Hon. Karla Kerlin
(Distinguished Service Awardee) and to all of WLALA Foundation’s scholarship, grant and fellowship recipients. Thank you also to California Women Lawyers for bringing together women and minority bar associations in the powerful tribute to Justice Ginsburg on September 24. WLALA would like to dedicate this month’s message to recognizing and honoring the enduring contributions and importance of LatinX Americans to the United States and celebrating the many heritages and cultures of Americans – from or with ancestors from Mexico, the Caribbean, Spain and Central and South America. The term “LatinX” is a gender neutral or non-binary alternative to relate to people of Latin American origin or descent.
