There is Power in the Presence of the People with a Purpose.

Our purpose last year under then President Christopher Lomax's leadership was in part to come back together as a community after COVID. And that we did. For the upcoming year, we not only want us to remain together, but we also want all of us to remember our purpose every time we are together.

Our organization’s purpose from the inception has been and will always be to empower the community, ensure inclusion, and pursue justice through advocacy. So, every event that we host for the next year will be geared towards one or all of those:

  • Whether it be advocating for and giving power back to those in our community who feel powerless, by participating in our legal clinics, legal panels, and accepting pro bono cases when called upon;
  • Whether it be reminding our community members through educational events that there is power in the presence of the people when we vote and when we embrace our jury duty;
  • Whether it be reminding those who are trying to erase us and our history that there is power in the presence of the people who are educated about their history and included in every space to share their experiences and their greatness.

We the people are great, and we are powerful, especially when we are present. There is power in our presence, but we must always have a purpose. Our purpose is to serve you and our community for the 23-24’ term, and we look forward to doing so!
