Dear Members and Friends of the Hispanic Bar Association of Orange County,
Welcome to 2022! I am honored to have the privilege to serve as your OCHBA President and I look forward to working with an amazing 2022 Board of Directors. Together we will make 2022 a great year focused on overcoming obstacles and paving the way for our future generations of legal professionals. I encourage all members to reach out to our Board of Directors with any questions or suggestions regarding our organization. Each one of our members are what makes the OCHBA strong, stay connected with us and reach out with any suggestions, questions or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you!
With the news of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer’s retirement comes a time for our Administration and Congress to unite and appoint our next Justice to reflect our values, beliefs and above all love and respect for our constitution. We have endured a very challenging couple of years, yet have demonstrated that our country is stronger than ever and our commitment to racial and gender equality must not waver. The United States is a nation of immigrants, the protector of civil and human rights and we must unite and protect our nation, our people and our laws. Our hope is to see a Supreme Court that reflects our nation. We look forward to welcoming a new Justice and thank Justice Breyer for his undying support of our justice system and his legacy of more than 27 years on the court.
As we begin 2022, we have our biggest fundraiser of the year right around the corner. Our 44th Annual Scholarship Fundraiser & Installation Dinner on March 12, 2022 is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we need your support! Our Annual Dinner is the principal fundraiser for the Wally Davis Memorial Scholarship Fund and our future generations of Latinx attorneys depend on our help. 
At our 44th Annual Dinner we will have the pleasure of honoring:
Associate Justice Maurice Sanchez
Lifetime Achievement
Court Appointment Special Advocates (CASA OC)

Gilbert Paul Carreon
