Belva Lockwood Luncheon 2017

Peggy Cooper Cafritz

Join Dean and Robert Kramer Research Professor of Law, Blake D. Morant and the GW Law Alumni Association for the annual Belva Lockwood Luncheon on behalf of the GW Law Association for Women (LAW). 

Peggy Cooper Cafritz JD ’71, former President of the D.C. Board of Education, was selected as this year's honoree for her long and successful career in the arts and education. She founded the Duke Ellington School for the Arts while a law student. She was the youngest person ever selected to serve as a fellow at the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars. Peggy has both an Emmy and Peabody award for her documentary work and serves as a member of President Clinton's Committee on the Arts and Humanities. Past recipients of the Belva Lockwood Award were trailblazers in their fields, and Law Association of Women believes she exemplifies this trait through her dedication to diversity in the arts and humanities, to education reform, and to supporting the D.C. community.  

Please join us for this special event honoring one of GW's finest graduates; network with alumnae attendees, and acknowledge the law school's crucial role in championing the careers of female attorneys.
