I worked on voter registration during the Mississippi Summer Project in 1964. In 1965 and 1966, I helped to found and then to write for the Southern Courier, an Alabama civil rights newspaper. Inspired by that experience, I became a lawyer. I have represented the United Farm Workers, the ACLU, etc. I feel that I always provide legal assistance to the underdog. Now I have a husband, kids aged 19 and 15. I look forward to attending a 40th reunion in 2004.
