Hannah-Beth Jackson Awarded


Hannah-Beth Jackson, who worked in the Santa Barbara DA’s Office and later went on to serve three terms in the State Assembly, was honored on 9/15 by California Women Lawyers with the prestigious Fay Stender Award. It’s given annually to an attorney committed to women, disadvantaged groups, and unpopular causes, and is a role model for female attorneys. Jackson, who has expressed her intention to run in next year’s 19th District State Senate race, currently heads the Institute of the Renewal of the California Dream and is president of Speak Out California! She also hosts a weekly radio show on Saturday mornings.
