Judge Lisa Porter to Head B’nai B’rith Justice Unit
The B’nai B’rith Justice Unit #5207 celebrated its annual installation of new officers at their 33rd annual brunch on Sunday, March 10, 2013, at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale.
The members celebrated the election of one of the LGBT community’s outstanding advocates for social justice, the Honorable Lisa Porter. Judge Porter was installed as the B’nai B’rith president for the 2013-14 term.
A former assistant state attorney and one time environmental crimes prosecutor in Ocala, Porter was sworn in by the Chief Judge of Broward County, the Honorable Peter Weinstein.
With her at the ceremony, appropriately held at the same time Pride South Florida was holding its annual Pridefest in Holiday Park, was Patricia Windowmaker, Judge Porter’s wife, a prominent lawyer in her own right.
