Partner, Latham & Watkins LLP, former assistant attorney general in the U.S. Department of Justice Criminal Division
One of the past times our great nation was tested, on September 11, 2001, I saw first hand the power of unity-the power to help, to hope, to heal and emerge stronger. Some of the tests we face now are different and some of the same tests remain, but the need to help and understand one another, to hope for the better and to emerge stronger is as great today as ever. I am committed to this Project because of the vision and mission to bring people together.
