On October 19, 2022, LaDonna Lusher, Leonor Coyle, Michele Moreno, and Ines Cruz of Virginia & Ambinder, LLP attended the 2022 Dignity, Community, and Power Awards Gala for Make the Road New York, an organization which promotes policies and reform for various pertinent social issues and provides legal services, education opportunities, and a safe, community space to working class and immigrant New Yorkers of color.  The Gala honored Gerald Bryson, Jordan Flowers, Derrick Palmer, and Chris Smalls, founders of the Amazon Labor Union and staunch advocates for workplace and human rights.  The Gala also honored Jumaane D. Williams, New York City Public Advocate, Ana Maria Archila, National Movement Leader, and Little Amal Walks NYC.  V&A is honored to be associated with this instrumental organization which has done so much to advance the health and wellbeing of all New Yorkers.
