A lawyer and author, as well as a human rights advocate, she has devoted more than 40 years to the pursuit of equal justice, the promotion and protection of basic rights, and the preservation of the rule of law, and written the New York Times best seller Being Catholic Now, as well as Speak Truth to Power and Robert F.
