Grass Roots Justice Awards – May 9th, 2019

GJP’s “Grass Roots Justice Awards” is our primary annual fundraising event during which we honor extraordinary individuals and organizations in our community whose commitment, leadership and hard work advance justice among the poor.

GJP had the distinct pleasure of honoring Peter Carter and the Delta Air Lines Legal Department at this year’s Grass Roots Justice Awards.

Peter Carter: EVP, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary of Delta Air Lines, Inc.

We were delighted to recognize Peter and his team for their extraordinary commitment to serving the community and for their robust pro bono efforts.  Assistant General Counsel Sheandra Clark serves on GJP’s Board, and the Delta Legal Department is actively involved in GJP’s Criminal Records Clinic, helping people overcome barriers to employment and housing resulting from a past arrest that did not lead to conviction.

Our esteemed Co-Chairs for this event were Francis S. “Frank” Blake, non-executive Chairman of Delta’s Board of Directors and Teresa Wynn Roseborough, Executive Vice President, General Counsel & Corporate Secretary for The Home Depot.

We are grateful for the support of our sponsors and hosts of this year’s Grass Roots Justice awards, as well as those who donated to GJP in honor of the event.
