President's Message

The past weeks have been filled with press about migrant children being separated from their parents at the border.  We’ve all seen pictures and heard audiotape of traumatized children crying.  As women, mothers, and lawyers the injustice and inhumanity of this policy touches us to the very core.  It was hard for me to even fathom this happening in our country.  Yet, it was and families are still separated.  This is not a partisan issue – this is a humanitarian issue and an issue of basic rights.  I was heartened by the many volunteers who sprang into action to help these children and their parents although I wish that the process could move faster and relief could come to these families immediately.  As lawyers, we are uniquely situated to get involved, protect the rights of others and advocate for justice.
