QUEEN’S BENCH MONTHLY LUNCHEON
Jun 12 Interrupting Racism – Grounding An Ally
Please join us Tuesday, June 12th at noon at the federal courthouse in Portland (lunch tickets available here) or via FacebookLive on the Queen’s Bench Facebook page for “Interrupting Racism – Grounding An Ally” with Kasia Rutledge, recipient of the 2017 Judge Mercedes Deiz Award and Capitol Defense Attorney at Kasia Rutledge Law (formerly of Metropolitan Public Defenders) and Rakeem Washington, Executive Director of The Portland Observer (the oldest continuous African-American owned publication in the State of Oregon), Adjunct Professor at Portland State University, and Director of the Opening Doors Grant at Portland Community College. CLE credit pending.
Each calendar year, the Queen’s Bench luncheons and events focus on a different theme consistent with our mission to promote professional advancement, camaraderie, and good fellowship among women in the legal profession and the community. During 2018, we will explore and look at Oregon with an intersectional lens. Everyone is welcome – you need not be a member to attend our events.
Except where indicated otherwise below, our monthly luncheons will be held at the federal courthouse, 1000 SW Third Avenue, Portland, OR (courtroom to be announced on a sign in the lobby each month). Doors open at 11:45 a.m., and our speakers will begin at noon. Please bring photo identification to present to courthouse security.
The bag lunches will be catered by Bridge City Cafe, at a cost of $13 (or $5 for students). Registration closes at 9 p.m. on the Thursday prior to the Tuesday luncheon, but you may also attend without a lunch by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Nursing mothers and young children are welcome, and celebrated, at all Queen’s Bench events.
Attend in person or via FacebookLive on the Queen’s Bench Facebook page
