About the Speakers

ROBERT ABRAMS, born and raised in the Bronx, went on to become a crusading attorney general of New York from 1979 to 1993. As a reformer, he battled political machine bosses and special interests, winning historic victories for consumers, protecting the environment, and a woman’s right to choose. As president of the National Association of Attorneys General, he led attorneys general across the nation to protect the rights of all Americans. In recognition of his contributions to the people of New York State, the Justice Building in Albany was renamed the Robert Abrams Building for Law and Justice. Abrams is a graduate of Columbia College and the New York University School of Law.


LETITIA "TISH" JAMES is the 67th Attorney General for the State of New York. With decades of work, she is an experienced attorney and public servant with a long record of accomplishments. She is the first woman of color to hold statewide office in New York and the first woman to be elected Attorney General.

In 2013, Ms. James was elected Public Advocate for the City of New York and became the first woman of color to hold citywide office. As Public Advocate, Ms. James served as a watchdog over New York City government agencies and as an advocate for the City’s most vulnerable communities. She transformed the Public Advocate’s office to be a formidable engine for change. <<READ MORE>>
