"In these challenging times, where the legal profession has been called upon to address critical, life-altering issues in our community, I understand first-hand, as an African American woman, the need for communities to not only feel empowered, but are in fact, truly empowered to make identifiable, tangible change," she said. "So, I welcome the opportunity to celebrate the 12th Annual Heroines of Excellence."
