Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much. – Helen Keller
It has been an incredible two months for Lawyers Club members and sponsors. Through our membership survey we sought input from our members about their Lawyers Club experience. Our first press release for the year was issued. We held a virtual Swearing-In & Passing of the Gavel ceremony that delighted and inspired everyone – it was truly a joyous celebration. Two of our award nominees were selected to be award recipients. 
The first board meeting was a great virtual success with board decisions to ensure this year’s theme of Service, Inclusion & Advocacy touches all facets of our organization. The virtual leadership retreat attended by over 65 Lawyers Club committee co-chairs and liaisons was a huge success. We had Alexis Cole, past Washington D.C. Policy Director for Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, Christie Hill, Deputy Advocacy Director for ACLU San Diego & Imperial Counties and Karen Fleshman, owner of Racy Conversations, ignite everyone’s passion for Lawyers Club. Our Fund for Justice committee kicked off the first committee meeting for the year, with many more other committees kicking off in August. And our Special Edition Centennial e-blast in honor of the one-hundred-year anniversary of the 19th amendment inspired everyone with a videospecial edition newsletter and an op-ed published in The San Diego Union-Tribune.
We are working hard to empower you to be the best legal professional you can be, provide an inclusive environment for all, and mobilize you to advocate for reproductive justice. Renew today!
