A Broken Promise in Texas: Race, the Death Penalty and the Duane Buck Case
Event Date(s):Thursday, January 17, 2013 - 7:00pm
On Thursday, January 17, 2013, our friends at the prestigious civil rights law firm Murphy, Falcon & Murphy hosted a reception in honor of Sherrilyn A. Ifill, LDF’s seventh President & Director-Counsel. Close to 90 friends and donors were on hand to congratulate our new leader. We are also pleased to report that many who were present have made multi-year commitments to lend their financial support to LDF. During her remarks, Sherrilyn pledged that going forward, LDF will be just as effective in addressing racial justice and equity as it has been in the past. Sherrilyn also confirmed LDF’s commitment to continuing to engage deeply in issues of economic justice and poverty in Baltmimore; just as LDF is similarly engaged in communities throughout the United States.
LDF is planning to host similar events throughout the year. If you would like to host an event such as this one, please contact Monique Brizz-Walker, LDF’s Interim Director of Development at (212) 965-2228 or via e-mail at email@example.com.
