Brown-Forman Spirit of Justice Award Presentation

Wednesday, October 28 at 2 PM

On October 28, Legal Aid Society honored Sadiqa Reynolds, President and CEO of Louisville Urban League and longtime advocate for equal justice, with the sixth annual Brown-Forman Spirit of Justice Award on WAVE 3’s WAVE Country.

 

The Brown-Forman Spirit of Justice Award is given annually to a member of the community who demonstrates deep dedication to upholding the principles of equal justice. Past recipients include Edward S. and Cornelia Bonnie, R. James Straus, the Honorable Boyce F. Martin III, Stephen Reily, and Martha Hasselbacher. Though the award ceremony traditionally takes place at Legal Aid Society’s annual Brush Bottle & Barrel of the Bluegrass fundraiser, this year’s event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, the Legal Aid Society partnered with WAVE 3’s WAVE Country with Dawne Gee to present the award.

Congratulations to the 2020 Pro Bono Award Recipients!

Each October, the Legal Aid Society celebrates Pro Bono Celebration Week and presents awards to select volunteers who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to pro bono service. Please join us in congratulating this year's winners!

2020 Outstanding Volunteer Award

I volunteer with the Legal Aid Society (LAS) because of the joy I experience when I contribute to someone moving closer to living their best life. In return, I find that I am closer to living my best life. I am supported by the LAS and its vast resources. I am never on my own. I am always learning, which makes me a better attorney. I have become one more person growing LAS’ sphere of influence and its commitment to improving access to justice in our community.  Like LAS, I too have a goal of creating a society where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. I am honored by this award. Humbly, I thank you.
