OCWLA is happy to recognize Kimberly LaSalle, who received the 2022 Fay Stender Award from California Women Lawyers (CWL). "This is the honor of my lifetime to be acknowledged for my work with vulnerable populations...Thank you OCWLA for nominating me for the prestigious Fay Stender Award!"
CWL established the Fay Stender Award in 1982 in honor of Fay Stender, a Bay Area attorney who spent much of her professional life fighting for prisoners' rights. CWL gives the award to a feminist attorney, who, like Fay Stender, is committed to the representation of women, disadvantaged groups and unpopular causes, and whose courage, zest for life and demonstrated ability to effect change as a single individual makes her a role model for women attorneys.
Congratulations Kimberly La Salle!
