Dear BALIF Members and Friends,
I have just returned from my niece's high school graduation where her principal challenged the graduates to decide what their legacy was going to be. It's a good question to ask ourselves now and then - what will our legacy be?
BALIF's legacy is already partially known, but continues to evolve as our committed board and talented members continue to support the cause of LGBT equality. We know BALIF has worked to support diversity and equality for all through drafting amicus briefs, conducting community and educational activities, successfully mentoring hundreds if not thousands of lawyers, helping LGBT lawyers reach the bench, and providing a myriad of venues and events for LGBT lawyers and allies to network. In short, BALIF is making and continues to make a difference for the LGBT legal community and our broader society.
So what will your legacy be?
