There are a lot of things that LIFT (Legal Information for Families Today) and #JohnJayCollege have in common. Both LIFT and John Jay aim to make justice and education accessible to everyone, regardless of income, race, gender, status, or sexual orientation. And, both LIFT and John Jay reach out to underrepresented populations, especially low-income households, to help them better their lives. Appreciating these similar objectives, LIFT honored John Jay President Karol V. Mason at their Gala on May 15.
Four @johnjaypli students were invited as guest of Wendy Dessy, @liftonline Board of Directors Member, and @proskauer_rose. The students, Nicolette Brown, Shanil Capellan, Kelly Huie, and Sharna McKenzie, all enjoyed meeting the attorneys, judges, and advocates at the event, as they nibbled on hors d’oeuvres and took in the City view from the roof deck.
