Each year we pay special tribute to a "shining star" attorney whose exemplary dedication to representing sexual assault survivors is inspiring. The Shining Star Award was established in 2002, and we have since developed a Shining Star Step Into the Light Gala. The Gala celebrates individuals who have improved the lives of sexual assault survivors through exemplary service.
