Summer Justice Academy For Young Women

Andrea Stewart-Cousins

July 17, 2014

As a way to encourage more women to pursue a career in public policy, Senator Stewart-Cousins has made it a tradition to attend the Summer Justice Academy for Young Women to speak to high school girls about her role as a State Senator and Democratic Conference Leader, discussing how they can change so many lives in the role and what they can do now to start preparing.

The Summer Justice Academy for Young Women is organized every July by the New York State Women Judges and Pace Law School "to provide young women from minority or disadvantaged backgrounds an opportunity to immerse themselves in a program designed to inspire them to pursue educational paths that may lead to careers in the law". Click here for more information.
