In honor of Women’s History Month, Kei-Touch interviewed The Honorable Aisha Braveboy, State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County, MD. She shared some of her story and what led het to become an attorney. State’s Attorney Braveboy  was inspired by Supreme Court Nominee Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to write a poem titled She is Me.

In a touching moment, she shared the story of Lt. Richard Collins III who was fatally stabbed in 2017 in an incident which many believed was racially motivated. His killer was convicted of 1st degree murder and sentenced to life in prison. State’s Attorney Braveboy took it a step further and worked with the family to pass a law in his name. A state law named for Lt. Richard Collins III went into effect October 1, 2020 that allows prosecutors to pursue hate crime charges for acts motivated “in part” by hate.

State’s Attorney Aisha Braveboy is truly an inspiration and history in the making!
