Denise Ghartey ’19 has been elected President of the Harvard Legal Aid Bureau for 2018.
“We are excited to continue the work of this year’s board and to support the HLAB mission, which aims to promote racial justice and disrupt racial and socio-economic inequalities,” said Ghartey. “We will also increase our engagement with the Cambridge and Greater Boston Area community through community partnerships and radical political lawyering.”
HLAB’s outgoing President, Julian SpearChief-Morris ’18, is “thrilled” that Ghartey will serve as his replacement.
“[Ghartley] is a strong leader, she has an infectious personality, and she knows how to make those around her feel welcome and included,” he said. “She has a great understanding of the community in which the Bureau operates, and a unique insight into how the Bureau can be made more accessible to the people which it serves.”
