Minnesota Association Of City Attorneys Wins Public Lawyer Diversity Award For Just Deeds Work

The Minnesota State Bar Association (MSBA) and its Public Law Section Council has awarded the Minnesota Association of City Attorneys (MACA) Executive Committee the 2021 Public Lawyer Diversity Award. The City of Golden Valley is a part of MACA and its attorney, Maria Cisneros, recently served as president of the organization.

MACA is being recognized for its work with Just Deeds, a coalition providing free legal and title services to help property owners find discriminatory covenants and discharge them from their property titles.

The Public Lawyer Diversity Award recognizes outstanding effort and dedication by a public lawyer or office or organization of public lawyers in Minnesota who has had a demonstrated impact on improving the employment opportunities for lawyers from groups historically under-represented because of race, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental disability, or sexual orientation, or eliminating bias based on race, ethnicity, gender, physical and mental disability, and sexual orientation in employment of lawyers.
