Merri Baldwin Installed as BASF’s 2017 President

December 16, 2016  – San Francisco –
Merri Baldwin, Rogers Joseph O’Donnell, was installed as the 2017 President of The Bar Association of San Francisco on December 15 at The Bar Association of San Francisco’s Annual Membership Luncheon and Installation of Officers.

In her inaugural speech, Baldwin highlighted her theme for 2017: mobilizing for justice in our community. Initiatives she has planned for 2017 include the formation of an Immigration Representation Task Force; an Attorney of the Day volunteer program at the Justice & Diversity Center’s Homeless Advocacy Project; and a debate skills workshop with detained youth at the Woodside Learning Center, where many of the students have faced significant obstacles in their lives, which include involvement in the foster care system; most have experienced some form of violence; all have had their educations disrupted.
