Karice DavisKarice Davis in her own words on serving others...


Earlier this October Karice Davis served on the Youth Council of the Georgia Association of Black Women Attorneys (GABWA). The Youth Council was responsible for formulating panels and questions for the panels at the upcoming Youth Summit. The focus this year was "Know Your Rights" and our goal was to educate young black men and women about the legal system and how to properly interact with those who are in it. 

“Serving on this committee really opened my eyes to the impact that social injustices have on people of color in my community. I always knew that police brutality was a huge hardship that many have had to face, but it did not occur to me that this was a problem that was so close to home. In the news and on social media, I hear people make statements about how these situations could happen to anyone. It could be my own mother, my own brother. Serving on the Youth Council really showed this to me. When I looked over all of the people who had come out to be a part of the summit, I saw many men and women who could have been my parents, many boys, and girls who could have been siblings of mine. Seeing so many young people come out to see how they could do their part in the community really encouraged me to remember to keep doing mine.   I want to continue to be a voice for those who may not have one. I want to keep striving for change and pushing others to do the same. Working to make a difference in my community has already been successful. Now, I want for that success to continue to grow.”
