Happy to accept the grant was Katy Conklin (center), executive director of Hope Shores Alliance. As northeast Michigan’s leading experts on sexual and domestic violence, Hope Shores Alliance believes that everyone has the right to live in a safe environment. The staff supports and advocates for survivors and their families with a variety of free, confidential and voluntary services and resources that include a 24-hour help and support line, advocacy, counseling, supportive listening, emergency shelter, and long term housing.

The WLAMF’s primary mission is to support the education of women who show leadership in advancing the position of women in society. Founded in 1983, the WLAMF reorganized in 1997 around this mission, realized annually through scholarship awards to outstanding women law students attending Michigan law schools.
