WILLIAMS GLOBAL LAW INVITED TO THE WHITE HOUSE AS PART OF CARIBBEAN-AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH IN JUNE



Since 2006, June has been designated as Caribbean-American Heritage Month by Presidential Proclamation. The month-long observance promotes the rich culture and heritage of the Caribbean American people and their contribution to the United States of America. As part of the celebration, President Biden and First Lady, Dr. Biden invited members of the Caribbean American community for a special tour of the White House. Williams Global Law Managing Partner, Simone Williams who is of Jamaican heritage, attended the event with Law Partner, Robert Arrington.






President Biden stated the following as part of his June 2023 Proclamation on Caribbean-American Heritage month: During Caribbean-American Heritage Month, we celebrate the achievements and dreams of the millions of people of Caribbean origin now living in the United States while honoring the shared history of joy and perseverance that has united and enriched life across our region for centuries. Since our founding, Caribbean Americans from Alexander Hamilton to Colin Powell have contributed to the United States in the most profound ways. Today, pathbreakers like Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor continue advancing our work toward a more perfect Union. I am especially proud of the extraordinary leaders of Caribbean heritage now serving in my Administration ‑- from Vice President Kamala Harris to Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona, Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas, and White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. And I take equal pride in the generations of Caribbean Americans who literally built this country — bringing tremendous hope and energy to bear as small business owners, teachers, health care workers, military service members, union organizers, community leaders, and so much more.
