President's Message

As 2022 closes out, I think about how much the world has changed over these last few years and how health became front and center in our thoughts, policies, and for many, how health rose to the top of their priority list. For me, that includes physical, mental, and emotional health. What has served as my centering force over the years is racing triathlons.


WLALA proudly stands in solidarity with its sister bars and other legal organizations in its heightened commitment to work together to protect the rights of all.
