Clean out your closets for Free the Girls! WLSO will be sponsoring its annual bra drive where you can donate your gently used bras to those in need. Free the Girls is an organization that collects new and slightly-used bras for victims of human trafficking. The women then sell these bras, allowing them to gain independence and earn a living. See freethegirls.org
to learn more about this great cause. WLSO will place a donation bin under its bulletin board in the Brief Stop after Spring Break, and will collect bras throughout the rest of the spring semester. Updates will be posted on the WLSO Facebook page: facebook.com/WLU.WLSO

VIRGINIA WOMEN ATTORNEYS ASSOCIATION: ANNUAL CONFERENCE
October 17-19, The Tides Inn, Irvington, VA
The Virginia Women Attorneys Association's 2014 conference is titled "Law: The Ultimate Power Tool." A power tool equalizes. You do not need brute strength to build things or tear them down. This is what law does or is supposed to do — it equalizes. With the law, we can try to achieve justice for our clients, create corporations and tear down institutionalized injustice. As attorneys, we wield that power tool and with us rests the responsibility to learn how to use it well, whether in the courtroom, in the boardroom, or in administrative proceedings.
