It was a lovely night at the Waterfront Hotel for the 2015 Installation and Distinguished Service Awards Reception. We honored award recipients Judge Kolakowski, Darryl Stallworth, Lauren Powe, GJELL, and the Alameda County Law Library, swore in the 2015 Board of Directors, and were inspired by the words of keynote speaker Lateefah Simon to be activists for criminal justice reform.
Thank you to all who came out to celebrate our award recipients and welcome the new board of directors.
