The 2020 shut-down has felt like a “time out” in so many ways. Many of us have lost employment, lost loved ones, lost opportunities, lost touch with our routines and lost the ability to see friends and members of our community in person. We have had to reach a new understanding of what – and who — is essential. We have had to create new ways of being together, new ways of working, and new ways of sustaining community. Member Lois Murphy will explore this theme and how we can use this crisis as an opportunity to refocus on the things that matter most.
Lois Murphy has been a member of USG since 2017. She is a wife, a mother of two adult daughters, sister, friend, and co-chair of USG’s Social Justice Council. As a Trial Judge, she has spent significant time over the last months reinventing methods to conduct court hearings virtually, bringing the Court and Justice literally into people’s homes (and sometimes cars) rather than bringing the people into the Courthouse.
