The attorneys that volunteer with the Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association give their time to help underprivileged girls through a monthly mentoring and empowering program at the Lillie C. Evans K-8 Center in Miami. Today, financial services attorney Jennifer Newton taught 20 seventh-grade girls money management through a Monopoly game. The mentoring program was highlighted earlier this year in this Miami Herald article along with other empowerment programs by women lawyers' groups.
