  • In honor of Jackie Berrien

    On November 9, 2015, we lost our dear friend and classmate Jackie Berrien. As you know, Jackie dedicated her considerable talents and energy to paying it forward, working at the ACLU, the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights under Law, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and chairing the EEOC. Losing her was a blow in ways difficult to express fully. But, taking on the challenge her friend and colleague NAACP LDF Director Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill issued, we are working to make sure that Jackie’s passing is not the end of her innumerable good works. To that end, we are raising funds to establish a scholarship in Jackie’s name at Harvard Law School. Jackie was not only an alumna, she mentored students informally and formally, and inspired countless others to join her in working for social justice. The scholarship that we seek to fund will defray educational expenses for students following in Jackie’s footsteps. Endowing the scholarship requires a minimum of $250,000.

    Please join us in building this new fund to ensure that Jackie’s legacy endures.
