We invite you to join us at the 2018 QLaw Annual Banquet!

Friday, April 13, 2018

Westin Seattle Hotel

5:30 Cocktail Hour

6:30 Dinner Program

The QLaw Annual Banquet is an opportunity to celebrate the diverse LGBTQ communities within the legal profession, to gather as friends, “family,” and colleagues, and to reflect on the victories of the last year and the struggles still to come. Each year, the QLaw Annual Banquet welcomes over 400 attorneys, judges, legal professionals, public officials, and LGBTQ leaders and visionaries from throughout the state.

This year, the QLaw Association is pleased to welcome the Honorable G. Helen Whitener as keynote speaker.  Judge Whitener has served with distinction as a judge on the Pierce County Superior Court since 2015.  A former prosecutor, defense attorney, and administrative law judge, Judge Whitener brings a wealth of experience to her work as a judge, and is the second black woman on the bench and the first openly lesbian judge in Pierce County.  Born and raised in the Caribbean island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, Judge Whitener is also the first immigrant-born judge of her court.  Judge Whitener speaks often on human rights, access to justice, and the rights and responsibility of the judiciary in ensuring the rights of all that appear before them to basic dignity and respect in judicial proceedings.

For our guests travelling from outside of the greater King County area, we have a discounted ticket price as well as a reduced hotel rate at a nearby downtown Seattle hotel.  Please contact banquet@qlaw.org for this information.
