Attorney Award Winners and Luncheon
We’re pleased to announce that Texas State Senator Wendy Davis will be our special guest speaker at the annual TCWLF Grants and Awards Luncheon on May 19, 2017 at the Four Seasons Hotel. As many of you may know, the aim of our sister organization, the Travis County Women Lawyers’ Foundation, is to provide grants to local non-profits that provide direct legal services to women and children in Central Texas.
