BAAD WOMEN MEETING
Thursday, April 15, 2021
It's time for a change. Too many of our public officials think they are above the law. We need someone who can restore integrity to public service in Texas. Someone who will use our legal system to fight for fairness and justice. And that’s Joe Jaworski, candidate for Texas Attorney General.
Come chat with Joe about Real Justice for Texas!
Joe Jaworski is a third-generation Texas trial attorney and former Mayor of Galveston. Joe’s term as mayor was defined by his unwavering support for and success in rebuilding Galveston’s storm-devastated public housing; a political choice that made a positive difference for thousands of Island residents but cost him a second term.
This year marks his thirtieth year of practice, a career that began as law clerk to United States Court of Appeals Fifth Circuit Judge John R. Brown, followed by a robust Admiralty defense trial practice representing Gulf Coast maritime interests, and then a rewarding plaintiff’s trial practice representing injured maritime workers. He owns The Jaworski Law Firm, headquartered in Galveston, and his practice is 100% mediation. He specializes in mediating Defense Base Act claims, mediating hundreds of claims annually domestically and abroad; these are the claims brought by military contractors for personal injuries arising from the War on Terror.
We're delighted to have Joe as our guest speaker, and we look forward to seeing you at the BAAD Women meeting via Zoom. Hope you can make it!
Sexual and domestic violence is growing at a tremendous rate. Did you know 1 in 3 women in the United States will experience some form of domestic violence and 1 in 6 women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime? A family member, a neighbor, a friend may be a survivor.
Come and talk with Leigh Ann Fry, President and CEO of Bay Area Turning Point, as she discusses this national crisis, the impact of the pandemic and the steps that need to be taken including legislative action, funding and community support.
