Justice Reform Advocate Nkechi Taifa to Receive 2014 Wiley A. Branton Award
Criminal justice lawyer Nkechi Taifa is scheduled to receive the prestigious 2014 Wiley A. Branton Award June 18 from the Washington Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Northwest D.C.
“The Washington Lawyers’ Committee is one of our best partners. The first time they came over, they listened to us. They understand that knowledge exists in lots of different places and didn’t act like lawyers know more than the citizens. With their help, we’re going to keep hundreds and thousands of people in this city.”
