Rockdale County Chief Magistrate Judge Phinia Aten received the “Bold and Fearless Award in Public Policy and Leadership” on Dec. 15, during the National Coalition of 100 Black Women Stone Mountain-Lithonia (NCBWSML) Chapter’s 12thAnnual Empowerment Awards Banquet. The banquet was held at the Marriott Northeast in Atlanta.

Sherry King, chapter president, thanked Judge Aten for her outstanding leadership in engaging and empowering children and young adults, as well as improving judicial outcomes.

In accepting the award, Judge Aten  said: “Everyone has a voice. You just have to find it then lift your voice.  For me, disrupting and ending the school to prison pipeline is a great reason to be bold and fearless. Our community is on my mind every morning when I awaken and every evening before I go to sleep.”

The National Coalition for the 100 Black Women’s Stone Mountain-Lithonia Chapter is an advocacy organization dedicated to bringing voice to the issues that concern women of color and children.
