Rachel Monaco-Wilcox 'LOTUS Legal Clinic' February 2nd 2018

Our monthly First Friday Mass and Meeting is February 2nd.

Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 A.M. in the Chapel of St. Edmund Campion, located on the 4th floor of Eckstein Hall (Marquette University Law School). The celebrant will be our co-chaplain, Fr. Paul Hartmann. Mass will be followed by our meeting and discussion from 8:00-9:00 A.M., which includes a continental breakfast (suggested donation $4.00).

Our February speaker is Rachel Monaco-Wilcox, founder and CEO of LOTUS Legal Clinic, which serves victims of trafficking and other forms of violence. She started LOTUS while Chair and Professor in the Justice Department at Mount Mary University, where she still teaches in the Art Therapy doctoral program. Rachel also has a private practice in mediation for trusts and estates, elder law and special needs issues, and is a frequent speaker and trainer on victim's rights, human trafficking, dispute resolution an systems change.

There are new parking instructions, per Marquette. Limited complimentary visitor parking is available in the Eckstein Hall underground parking structure, 11th Street level, between Wisconsin Avenue and Clybourn. There is a new parking system that will require two tickets to exit. Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space. Once parked, follow signs to the elevator. Take the elevator to the main floor, which opens to the foyer, and go to the Welcome Desk to get your "chaser" ticket so that you will not have to pay for parking when exiting. In other words, for free parking, when you exit you will need both the ticket you pulled when you entered and the "chaser" ticket the Welcome Desk gave you. You will be given instructions.
