Queens Botanical Garden Trip



Together with CITYarts, Robert S. Friedman, a Sheppard Mullin attorney visited the Martin Luther King Jr. Educational Campus to speak in front of a class in the High School for Law, Advocacy and Community Justice. Lots of interesting questions were raised by the students and they truly appreciated Friedman’s visit. We look forward to have Robert S. Friedman back to engage with our youth!
