Girls in grades 8-12 are invited to learn about law and justice careers and the role of the legal system in their lives at a free event hosted by InspireHER and the Snohomish County Chapter of the Washington Women Lawyers. The “Don’t Judge Me” Workshop was held Saturday, March 11, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Alderwood Boys & Girls Club.
“This is an opportunity for young women to learn about the workings of the legal system, talk to experts in the field and look at various career options in law and law enforcement,” said Marci Volmer, Snohomish Boys & Girls Club Director. “We know that the adage ‘You can’t be what you can’t see’ is very real, so we want to give girls a chance to imagine careers that they might not have considered.”
The event will cover topics such as sexual consent and knowing your rights, as well as a career panel and a mock trial to wrap up the workshop. Speakers include local judges, law enforcement officers, lawyers, public defenders, and more. Lunch will be provided.
Girls attending will also have the chance to participate in an Instagram scavenger hunt for a chance to win law-inspired prizes. To get in on the fun, please see the guidelines, and follow along on social media by using the hashtags #DontJudgeMe, and #InspireHER.
