Featured speaker: State Senator Jill Carter
Jill P. Carter has had a successful career championing for the marginalized and disenfranchised because it is in her DNA.

Carter was the third African-American female attorney elected to serve in the Maryland General Assembly as delegate for Baltimore City, Dist. 41. Former Delegate Carter, often referred to as “the legacy,” embodies the spirit of her freedom fighter father.
