The leadership of the California Women Lawyers (CWL) have endorsed incumbent Nancy O’Malley for Alameda County District Attorney. “CWL established a scholarship to honor Nancy for her dedication and commitment to promoting CWL and protecting all women and children in our society,” said CWL President Renee Galente. “Choosing to endorse her in this upcoming DA race was a natural for CWL.”
Nancy served as the CWL president in 2009-2010. She was the first woman ever elected District Attorney of Alameda County and has been the county’s district attorney for the last eight years. She is known for being a fair and vocal advocate for women, elderly, children and persons with disabilities. Nancy is also known for her aggressive response to human trafficking through the H.E.A.T. watch program. H.E.A.T. is a collaboration of prosecutors, police, service providers and communities in the fight against human trafficking.
“Nancy has proven herself in so many ways,” add Galente. “The people of Alameda County will be well served to have her continue in her role of district attorney.”
CWL joins the endorsement of Nancy by United States Senators Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein and hundreds of local elected officials and organizations within Alameda County.
