5:00 – 6:00 Safety, Self-Respect + Social Justice: A Panel Discussion with Judge Rosemarie Aquilina
Judge Rosemarie Aquilina is a judge of the 30th Circuit Court in Ingham County, Michigan and is widely known for presiding over the sentencing of Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics national team doctor accused of sexually assaulting at least 250 young women and girls, including numerous Olympic and US National Team gymnasts. During Nassar’s sentencing proceedings, Judge Aquilina made it her mission to empower Nassar’s survivors, permitting 156 victims of Nassar’s abuse to provide victim-impact statements over seven days of emotional and compelling testimony. Judge Aquilina is a highly outspoken and an engaging personality; she will discuss how athletes have the right to be protected from emotional, physical, and sexual abuse, and her message will encourage women to find their voices and recognize their inherent strength, power and full potential.
6:00 – 7:00 CDWBA Reception in Honor of Judge Rosemarie Aquilina
CDWBA will welcome Judge Aquilina to the Capital Region at an exclusive cocktail and hors d’ouvres reception open only to CDWBA members and their guests.
