Brooklyn Family Court’s seventh annual Hispanic heritage celebration focuses on service
The Kings County Family Court held its seventh annual Hispanic Heritage Month celebration in Downtown Brooklyn on Thursday, showcasing Hispanic culture, and speaking about the contributions that Hispanic and Latino Americans have made to this country.
This year’s theme was “Hispanic-Americans: A History of Serving our Nation,” and the keynote speaker for the event was attorney Grace Bonilla.
“Our theme this year gives us the opportunity to reflect on and recognize the extensive service and commitment that Hispanic and Latino Americans have provided to our country,” said Hon. Amanda White, supervising judge of the Brooklyn Family Court. “Their contributions are vast and include service in the military, state local and federal government, the courts, all the way up to the Supreme Court, and more.
“That same commitment to service is reflected in our own diverse staff, including judges, court attorneys, court officers, clerks, other court staff, lawyers and pretty much everybody here,” said White.
