Colorado Supreme Court Justice to be Keynote Speaker for Convention 2018
May 1, 2018
Our Convention 2018 keynote speaker will be Colorado Supreme Court Justice Monica M. Márquez! Justice Márquez became the first Latina and first openly gay person to serve on the Colorado Supreme Court when she was sworn in back in December of 2010. She is also a member of the Colorado and Denver Bar Associations, the Colorado Women’s Bar Association, and the Minoru Yasui Inn of Court. Prior to joining the Court, Justice Márquez served on the boards of the Colorado Hispanic Bar Association, the Colorado GLBT Bar Association, and the Latina Initiative. She also served as Chair of the Denver Mayor’s GLBT Commission.
Justice Márquez has received several honors and awards, including the Colorado GLBT Bar Association’s 2009 Outstanding GLBT Attorney Award, the 2011 Yale Latino Law Student Association’s Public Service Award, and the 2014 Latinas First Foundation’s Trailblazer Award.
We’re excited for Justice Márquez to share her inspiring story with us during the Saturday evening banquet!
