    A Virtual Event – “Women at the Forefront of Change”

    Friday, April 23, 2021

    11:30 am CT – Virtual Lobby Pre-Event Show

    12:00 pm CT – Program Begins

    Keynote speaker, Soledad O’Brien

    Through the power of storytelling, Soledad O’Brien brings a fresh perspective on diverse and contemporary issues to foster change in your own community or organization. Soledad has established herself as one of the most recognized names in broadcasting by telling the stories behind the most important issues, people and events of the day. A champion of diversity, she gives voice to the underserved and disenfranchised through her Emmy-winning reporting and acclaimed documentary series, “Black in America” and “Latino in America.” She also recently opened her show “Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien” from the steps of the National Archives in Washington, DC for the launching of “Rightfully Hers”- a new exhibit commemorating the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment – prohibiting states from denying the vote on the basis of gender.

    With eloquence and a measured ability to make often-divisive issues such as race relations, social inequality and mass incarceration accessible to all, she moves audiences to delve deeper into the headlines that shape our lives, outlooks and daily interactions. On stage, Soledad draws from her life and career to stimulate thoughtful conversation on the roles we each play within our communities and organizations, leaving audiences with memorable takeaways on the power of individuals and companies to make meaningful and lasting change.

    Hortense Ward Courageous Leader Awardee Patricia Diaz Dennis

    PATRICIA DIAZ DENNIS is a longstanding leader and groundbreaking role model. For decades, she has forged paths and opened doors of opportunity for women, and remains committed to keeping them open.

    Since her graduation from law school in 1973, Diaz Dennis achieved many firsts for women and Latinas in the legal profession, government, and the communications industry. She was the first female attorney at Paul Hastings, and eventually went on to receive three presidential appointments confirmed by the U.S. Senate. In 1983, President Reagan appointed her a member of the National Labor Relations board, and in 1986, he appointed her a commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission—both firsts for Latinas. In 1992, she became the first Latina Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights and Humanitarian affairs, appointed by President George H.W. Bush. Read full bio here.

    Michael Tigar’s “Sensing Injustice"

    In September 2018, we celebrated the launch of Michael Tigar’s digital archive, which features hundreds of documents that offer a glimpse into his multifaceted life as an activist, lawyer, and academic. Now, in April 2021, we come together to celebrate the publication of Tigar’s latest memoir, "Sensing Injustice: A Lawyer’s Life in the Battle for Change."

    From Monthly Review Press: “"Sensing Injustice" is a vibrant literary and legal feat. In it, Tigar weaves powerful legal analysis and wry observation through the story of his remarkable life. The result is a compelling narrative that blends law, history, and progressive politics. This is essential reading for lawyers, for law students, for anyone who aspires to bend the law toward change.”

    Please join Michael Tigar, the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, and the Dolph Briscoe Center for American History on April 23 for a virtual book launch featuring:

    Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Professor Emerita of Ethnic Studies, California State University
