Description

Empower Change Makers

Lawyers have been in the news recently. They stop deportations, sue to block the "Muslim Ban", and defend the most vulnerable communities. Diversity Awards recognizes lawyers (and future lawyers!) who are using the law to resit bigotry and advance social justice.

Keynote by UC President Janet Napolitano- who is suing the Trump Administration to protect DACAmented students

Also recogning the efforts of:

Microsoft- their leadership has been a vocal critic of anti-immigration efforts, going so far as to offer legal aid to employees affected by the DACA reversal.

Keker, Van & Peters- they sued the Trump Administration for the "Muslim Ban" and "Sanctuary Cities" executive orders.
