2021 KCWWL Law School Scholarship Recipients

Jacqueline Nguyen is the 2021 KCWWL University of Washington School of Law Scholarship Recipient. As the daughter of Vietnamese refugees, she demonstrates an active pursuit to increase the Asian female representation in the legal and political communities.  She is a female student representative for the Asian Bar Association of Washington and previously worked as a Political Strategies Associate with the ACLU of Washington. She now externs at the ABA Center of Human Rights under the Atrocity War Crimes Initiative. This scholarship will continue Jacqueline’s goal of justice for marginalized communities, especially as it relates to the oppression that Asian women face.

Minerva Sigüenza Gómez is the 2021 KCWWL Seattle University School of Law Scholarship Recipient.  Minerva is an Indigenous woman from Cuernavaca Morelos, Mexico.  She is married to her partner, Benjamin, and has a five-year-old, Sammy. Minerva’s dream of becoming a lawyer started in 2001, due to living through a very traumatic life-changing situation. Unfortunately, her dream was deferred for over 15 years due to her status as an ‘undocumented’ person living in this country.   She is a co-founder of the first undocumented youth organizing group ensuring the most vulnerable and underrepresented communities have a voice.  No longer an undocumented resident, in 2020 she and her family started this arduous and amazing journey at the Seattle University School of Law. Minerva has been actively involved in various social justice efforts since 2002 and believes that her calling is to become a social justice movement lawyer.  This scholarship will continue Minerva’s strong advocation for women, immigrants, and disenfranchised communities.   

Claudette Rushing is the KCWWL 2021 Small Firm Grant Awardee. Claudette’s career has focused on promoting gender and sex equity.  She recently opened her own small firm, Education Resolutions, LLC, that provides education, legal, and dispute resolution services to parents, state agencies, and school districts.  Prior to posting her own shingle, Claudette was  a federal and public service attorney for 10 years, with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights, the Oregon Department of Education, and the U.S. Department of the Interior.   While with the U.S. Department of Education, Claudette fought to ensure equal pay for female coaches, equal access to coaching time and resources for female student athletes, to prevent pregnancy discrimination in teachers and students, to prevent sexual assault on college campuses, and to prevent gender nonconforming  students from being bullied and harassed.  She also worked extensively with disability discrimination and harassment issues to ensure that students with disabilities had equitable access to school resources, supports, and services.
