Please join Georgia Justice Project for its 2015 Grass Roots Justice Awards on April 29, 2015 at Greystone Hall in Piedmont Park at 6:00 PM.
Each year at its annual Grass Roots Justice Awards, Georgia Justice Project honors extraordinary individuals and organizations in our community whose commitment, leadership and hard work advance justice among the poor.
This year, Georgia Justice Project is delighted to honor Teresa Wynn Roseborough, Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Corporate Secretary for The Home Depot, with our 2015 Grass Roots Justice Award. Teresa and The Home Depot have made a bold commitment to meaningful criminal justice reform. Teresa serves on the Board of Trustees for the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, which fights for racial justice by pursing a proactive agenda of structural change while balancing the need to defend and preserve hard-won civil rights gains. She also serves as a member of Governor Nathan Deal’s Criminal Justice Reform Council. And, The Home Depot corporation is leading by example, having made a powerful statement by “banning the box” on its own employment applications – giving applicants a fair chance and allowing employers the opportunity to judge individual job candidates on their merits as they reenter the workforce.
