Since 2007, when I co-founded Bowen Lambda, the LGBT law student group at the Bowen school of Law in Little Rock, and subsequently opened my law practice in 2009, I have dedicated my efforts to supporting the LGBT community, advocating for LGBT legal rights and protection of LGBT families. We have made a lot of progress, former clients and talented colleagues have joined the battle for equality, and I have been privileged to make new friends whom I now call family. But with the election of a firmly dedicated anti-LGBT rights administration, I fear for the future, for our future.  I pledge to continue using my law practice to fight to protect LGBT people, the queer community, and all of our families. We cannot go back. We must go forward together!
