On Friday, Nov. 30, WMU-Cooley Law School’s Grand Rapids campus hosted Coffee Talk with Grand Rapids Mayor Rosalynn Bliss. In conjunction with the law school’s Organization of Women Lawyers, the event gave law students the opportunity to share candid conversations with a local leader in the community.
“Mayor Bliss described some personal challenges of being a woman in traditional settings, along with what it is like to be involved in local government and politics,” said WMU-Cooley student Kaylee Taucher, who helped organize the event. “She encouraged everyone to get involved in their community and to stand up for what they believe.”
At the end of the event, Bliss shared a famous quote by Gandhi with the students: “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
