Nadia B. Ahmad, Denver Law LLM Student, Chosen by Denver Mayor Michael Hancock for Human Rights and Community Relations Advisory Board

Nadia B. Ahmad, who is studying for an LLM in the Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENRL) Graduate Program at the Sturm College of Law, has been appointed by Denver Mayor Michael Hancock to the city and county of Denver's Human Rights and Community Relations Advisory Board.

The Advisory Board advocates on issues and opportunities of the represented commissions and at-large constituency groups and communicates those to the Agency for Human Rights and Community Relations, which was established in 1948.

The Agency empowers communities to address local issues and strives to promote equal opportunity and protects the rights of all people regardless of race, color, creed, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability as well as works with the Agency regarding policies, goals and objectives that will affect the Agency and the constituents of the Commissions and at large groups.

Among the Commissions that are part of the Agency are: American Indian; African American; Asian Pacific; Aging, GLBT; Latino; People with Disabilities, and Women's.

Don Smith, Director of the ENRL Graduate Program, said, "Mayor Hancock's selection of Ms. Ahmad for this important position reflects his confidence in her judgment and experience. It is quite an honor for Ms. Ahmad. She will do an excellent job."

Ms. Ahmad practiced law in Florida before coming to Denver. She is a JD graduate of the University of Florida School of Law.
