March is very special to Lawyers Club because it is Women’s History Month, a month to recognize “sheroes” for their important past and present contributions to our society.

The promise of this America, one where I can be myself, where my bravery is rewarded rather than punished, where Black men and women feel protected by the justice system and can pursue any dream they have, where women are allowed to be powerful and in control, moved me to tears.

What are you?” A question I constantly have tried to find a correct answer to growing up. My appearance next to my Caucasian mother would often collect second glances from others in the grocery store, at restaurants, or even school events. Once, I had a doctor who apparently did not read my chart before coming in the room, who suggested a course of action he thought best for “Hispanic women.” I should clarify, I am a half-Caucasian and half-African American woman. This is why, on November 7, I ugly cried as Kamala Harris was confirmed as the first female to be elected vice-president—a woman of color elected to the second-highest office in the nation.

As we bid adieu to the upheaval of 2020, we know that 2020 will soon not be forgotten. It has been an extraordinary year filled with unprecedented challenges that, absent a crystal ball, we could not have imagined during our lifetime. The challenges brought on by the global COVID-19 pandemic stripped the veil of privilege and opened our eyes to its true meaning at so many levels especially race, socio-economic, career, relationships, health care and internet access. 
As a bar association during this extraordinary year, we recognized the privilege that we had to support our membership through —relationships and connectivity —empowerment and positivity —leadership and professional development. We committed ourselves to pivot with a laser focus on how to innovate to elevate our Service, Inclusion & Advocacy efforts for our members.

Completing our daily obligations can be difficult during these trying times.  By now, you probably have tried many techniques to cope with the stress and anxiety caused by the “new normal” and the seemingly unending uncertainty.  This week, I was reminded that sometimes the best technique to cope and move forward is to look for inspiration from others.  As you continue to tackle your responsibilities and find time to support our mission, I provide the following inspirational quote.  “Do all the good you can, for all the people you can, in all the ways you can, for as long as you can.”  -- Former U.S. Secretary of State and Senator Hillary Clinton.
