Hello Thurgood Marshall Bar Association (“TMBA”) Members, Friends and Supporters:
Happy Juneteenth! This is an American holiday that commemorates the June 19, 1865 end of slavery in the U.S by way of the Emancipation Proclamation.
We would like to thank all of the TMBA Members and Supporters who volunteered and donated school supplies to the Illumination Foundation at our first volunteer event on May 11, 2018. We had a great time making crafts, doing yoga/dance, and playing dodgeball with the wonderful children at the Children’s Resource Center.
A very special thank you to all of the folks who came out on a Friday during work hours to make the event a success, including: Sherry S. Bragg (Weintraub Tobin), Kimberly LaSalle (Law Offices of Kimberly La Salle); Alessandra Whipple, Daniel Whipple, Christian Amos, Danielle Chavez, Irena Sims, Lisa Easterbrook, Kathy Hoogeveen, Elizabeth Iturbide (Carothers DiSante & Freudenberger); and Porsche G. Clarke (State Compensation Insurance Fund). Our update includes pictures from the event. We look forward to working with the Illumination Foundation again in November 2018 as part of our efforts this year to combat homelessness in Orange County.
This week, TMBA is co-sponsoring the Orange County Bar Associations Diversity Summer Social Where Community Connects on Thursday, June 21, 2018, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. There will be a host of members from the OCBA, TMBA, and other affiliate bars at the event. We hope to see you there. If you are not yet registered, the registration link can be found on our website: https://www.thurgoodmarshallbarassociation.org/events/%EF%BB%BF%EF%BB%BFocba-diversity-summer-social/
Next, June 25, 2018 is the deadline to submit an application for an open seat on the OCBA Board of Directors. Nominations are being accepted for three seats for Directors At Large and Office of Secretary. We would love to see more TMBA Members on the OCBA Board of Directors so we encourage you to apply. We have attached a OCBA-Board-Application-Deadline-06-25-2018 for your convenience.
