President's Message

“Do not leave the arena to the fools.” Poet Nikky Finney shared this quote, which was a bit of advice that she received from a professor of hers, with the audience at the Black Women Lawyers’ Annual Scholarship Fundraiser and Awards Luncheon which took place on Saturday in Marina Del Rey.  That quote really resonated with me. We are living in a moment in history when able, ethical, competent people are speaking out and ridding the arena of several fools.  We’ve especially seen this in the #metoo movement. And, I think these are good words to live by. I was honored to be invited to the BWL event by a young lawyer that I met through WLALA who assisted in putting the event together. The theme, “Catalysts for Change” was appropriate and fitting as BWL honored changemakers Nina Shaw who was awarded the Excellence in Advocacy Award, Susan Burton who was awarded the Community Service Award, and Nikky Finney who was awarded the Excellence in the Arts Award. I was so inspired by these women who reminded me again how important it is that we continue to fight for equality, justice and an end to both gender and racial discrimination.
