As Women Lawyers of Sacramento approaches the end of Q2 this year, we reflect on our activity to date, and exciting upcoming events.
WLS 60th Anniversary Celebration
WLS celebrated its 60th Anniversary on May 19, 2022, hosting members of the bench, bar, and community at large at McGeorge School of Law for a dynamic and inspiring panel discussion featuring WLS Past Presidents Jerilyn Paik (1986), Windie Scott (1989), Karen Goodman (1999), and Sonia Fernandes (2017), moderated by WLS Judicial Liaison, the Hon. Elena J. Duarte. Thank you to our panelists, moderator, and generous sponsors and attendees for making this event an incredible success! Photos of the event can be found on the WLS Facebook Page.
June 22 – Pride Month MCLE with Justice Earl and Judge Mudryk
On June 22, 2022, WLS will celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month with the Hon. Laurie Earl and Hon. Andi Mudryk, joining in conversation about inclusion and equity, on the bench and in the law. Pride Month commemorates the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many Pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBTQ+ people have had in the world. This virtual event will qualify for MCLE Elimination of Bias credit, and tickets are available now on Eventbrite.
September 29-October 1 – WLS ArtFest 2022 and Sip n’ See
Save the date for September 29-October 1, 2022, when the WLS Foundation will host its premier fundraising event, including exhibits by local artists and a very popular silent auction. The WLS Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, uses all proceeds from ArtFest for law school student scholarships and grants to local organizations serving the greater Sacramento area. WLS will gather for this year’s Sip n’ See at Track-7 Brewing in Curtis Park, providing an opportunity to preview some of the pieces before ArtFest, and otherwise enjoy some live music, craft beer and good food.
We hope to see you at our upcoming events, and looking forward to a wonderful rest of the year!
