Our 2021 Champion of Justice

Maura Healey

 

We honor Maura Healey for her tireless work to fight for justice on a state and national level. As the Massachusetts Attorney General, Maura has focused on confronting the devastating opioid epidemic, reducing gun violence, enforcing civil rights, protecting consumers, and addressing the climate crisis. She has also championed access to health care and reproductive freedom.

 

Prior to starting her career in public service, Maura was a business and commercial litigator at WilmerHale LLP. She also served as a Special Assistant District Attorney for Middlesex County. In 2007, she joined the Attorney General's Office as Chief of the Civil Rights Division and later became Chief of the Public Protection and Business and Labor Bureaus. During this time, she served as lead counsel in the country's first successful challenge to the Defense of Marriage Act.

 

Maura is a graduate of Harvard College, after which she spent two years overseas as a starting point guard on a professional basketball team in Europe. She received her J.D. from Northeastern University School of Law.
