BAWAR has received the 2014 David Cunningham Community Service Award from the California Association of Black Lawyers (CABL) for its work providing support and advocacy to people who are at risk for or who have been sexually and/or commercially exploited, via its SEM program. On March 22nd, 2014 at 6pm at the Oakland Marriott Center, BAWAR will be presented the award during CABL’s Installation Dinner & Gala.
