Marin Republican Women Federated

Luncheon Meeting, Wednesday, May 13th

11:30am to 1:30 pm

 
Fabulous New Location: Spinnaker Restaurant, 
100 Spinnaker Avenue, Sausalito, CA 
 
 
 
With women running for the highest offices in the land it is only fitting to begin a speaker series that features ‘Empowered Women’ whom we find in our own back yard.
 
Speaker:  The Honorable Lois Haight Herrington
                   California Superior Court Judge, Contra Costa County
 
Topic: Victims versus Criminals
 
   An ardent crusader for “Victims of Crime,” Judge Haight, while a successful Prosecuting District Attorney in Alameda County, was a diligent advocate for Alameda County’s “National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.”  It was then that President Reagan appointed Judge Haight as Chair of the “National Task Force on Victims of Crime.”
   She has been the instrumental force in creating “Victims’ Rights” in the court systems throughout the United States.  Judge Haight brought attention to the Criminal Justice System where there was an imbalance in the treatment of victims and criminal defendants. The issue was that criminal defendants were supported in every way; however, the victims of crimes were ignored, mistreated and neglected.
   Judge Haight will give hair-raising examples to us of the stories she shared with President Reagan that gained his support for the “Victims of Crime Act.”  
   The media attention for the issues of the victims, the creation of her incredible task force which still operates today, and development of on-going programs to teach victims’ therapists, counselors and Court Advocates have been just a few of Judge Haight’s greatest accomplishments.
   Come and hear the details of this incredible woman’s journey and service to the citizens of our state and country.
 
     
Thank You and God Bless America, 
Karen M. Molden, First Vice-President Programs
