Smith Receives Gender Justice Award

Carmen Smith, Solicitor-General for Fulton County is the 2016 recipient of the Georgia Commission on Family Violence's Gender Justice Award. The award was presented to Smith on September 20 at GCFV's annual conference in Jekyll Island, GA. Each year, the award is presented to leaders in social justice who work for the betterment of women in Georgia. Recipients are chosen based on their history of increasing safety for victims and survivors of domestic violence, enhancing accountability of batterers, and making systemic changes to laws in Georgia – all in order to eliminate gender inequality.
