Saturday night, LSJA's Executive Director, Elizabeth Henneke, won the Austin Under 40 Award in the Legal category. She was recognized along with 4 other incredible women who passionately advocate for their clients and strive to make our community stronger for all.
Nearly two years ago, the Lone Star Justice Alliance was started to change the conversation about the incarceration of children and emerging adults. Yulise Reaves Waters, Blake Bowers, Gabby Fuentes and a host of talented, passionate, crazy smart interns have brought that dream to a reality with the incredible support of our Board of Directors, Caroline Kim, Keri Narramore McDonald, Larry Robinson, Caitlin Higgins Bailey, Phillip J. Yates, Doug Deason, Ashley Pettus and Allen Rothman. We’ve partnered with incredible stakeholders and allies too numerous to list here but who each work every day with equal parts passion and expertise. We share this with all of them and with the children we serve.
Thank you to the entire Austin Under 40 team for recognizing this work. We are beyond humbled by the honor.
All the news that's fit to print on youth and emerging adults in the justice system.
