EDVA Commemorates Women’s History Month
ALEXANDRIA, VA (STL.News) During this year’s Women’s History Month, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA) honors the achievements and invaluable contributions women have made over the course of American history and today.
“Women have made, and continue to make, immeasurable contributions to our Office,” said Raj Parekh, Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. “Their unparalleled leadership and dedication have helped secure the safety of our Nation and have promoted equal justice for all. Our Office recognizes that these changes did not take place overnight, and we are deeply committed to ensuring that all participants in the legal process, no matter their race, gender, religion, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or citizenship, have equal opportunity and equal protection under the law. As a part of that commitment, EDVA is dedicated to furthering our collective efforts to promote diversity and inclusion in all forms through our hiring, advancement, and community outreach practices.”
During this year’s Women’s History Month celebration, EDVA will host multiple events, including a virtual discussion with Judge Cheryl Ann Krause of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and a virtual discussion with Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Pamela Karlan of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division.
