PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE


It’s the start of a new year and we entered this year with hope for better but an understanding that 2020’s residue would hover over the new horizon. Man…. were we right! Between the lingering effects of the pandemic and the continued social unrest surrounding the elections, 2021 proved to have a rocky start. With that framework, as the leader of TMBA, my goal is to be intentional about the content and message to our membership. As a result, we wanted to take our time and get started on programming for the year. Our 4th Annual Awards & Installation Gala was a fundraiser this year and was held virtually on February 28th. This is our biggest fundraiser for the year and our supporters showed up for us in a big way. We have been able to raise over $30,000 for the newly formed Thurgood Marshall Bar Association Foundation. We are continuing in our mission to serve the black law students through scholarships and our new summer internship program. Thank you again to all of our sponsors who made the event possible. If you missed the installation, you can watch highlights and the whole virtual program on our website.
 
Our theme for this year is
Reconnect.Reinvest.Rebuild! We have some amazing programming in the coming months that will hopefully reconnect us as the world is starting to open back up. We will have quarterly general body meetings with raffles and giveaways! We want to get to know each of you, so expect a call from our Vice-President or myself within the coming weeks!
 
Lastly, we are so excited to be working with the newly formed Thurgood Marshall Bar Association Foundation on expanding our scholarship opportunities and building a network for our law student and attorney community! Be on the lookout for a revamped website that includes more information about the Foundation!
 
I can’t wait to Reconnect, Reinvest and Rebuild with each of you.

Best,

Rebekah Thomas, Esq.
Thurgood Marshall Bar Association President
