The FBA Chapter for the Districts of Kansas and Western Missouri are proud to announce that Chapter Leader Judge Gwynne E. Birzer was honored for being a trailblazer in the civics and law by The Kansas African American Museum (TKAAM). We are thankful for Judge Birzer’s leadership in many ways. Among other things, Judge Birzer has hosted Constitution Day at the Wichita Federal Courthouse for many years, welcoming students and community members to engage in a public reading of the U.S. Constitution.
The TKAAM live ceremony was held on November 10, 2023, and an on-demand recording of the ceremony is available here. For more than two decades, TKAAM has honored pioneers who helped shape the Kansas African American experience through an exhibit titled “Trailblazers.” A Trailblazer is a leader, a pacesetter, a pioneer, and each year the TKAAM honors individuals who have made a significant impact in their respective professions. Congratulations to Judge Birzer on this well-deserved recognition of her achievements in the legal community.
