McCree luncheon

The Federal Bar Association, Eastern District of Michigan Chapter, hosted its “2024 Wade H.

McCree Jr. Award for the Advancement of Social Justice. Project Clean Slate is a City of Detroit initiative that helps residents expunge criminal convictions and improve access to better employment, housing, and educational opportunities. 

Happy to congratulate LaBelle at the luncheon were (left to right) FBA President George Donnini of Butzel Long, LaBelle’s daughters Anna and Nora, and keynote speaker Charles B.
