Please join us as we welcome Hon. Allie Maldonado, citizen of the Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians to Grand Valley State University. Hon. Maldonado, as seen in the documentary, Warrior Lawyers, will be sharing with us, her journey to becoming an attorney, overcoming the intergeneration trauma of the Boarding School era, to become the State of Michigan's first Anishinaabekwe (Native American woman) to be appointed as judge to the Michigan Court of Appeals. She will share her experiences serving her community for many years, and how her work makes a significant impact on our citizens as well as the importance of having diversity sitting on the bench. This event will take place on our downtown campus, Richard M. Devos Center's Loosemoore Auditorium.
