We are honored to have Tarra Simmons as the June speaker in our White Collar Support Group™ Tuesday Speaker Series. Free and open to all!

In 2011 Tarra was sentenced to 30 months in prison for theft, drug, and firearm crimes. In 2017, she graduated from Seattle University School of Law with honors. After law school, she was not allowed to sit for the Washington State bar exam due to her status as a former convicted felon, thus she challenged the Washington State Bar Association rules in the Washington State Supreme Court and won; the court unanimously ruled in her favor on the same day. She was later sworn in as an attorney in the State of Washington on June 16, 2018.

In 2020, Tarra made history when she was elected to the Washington State Legislature. She is honored to serve her community in the 23rd Legislative District and make positive change for all Washingtonians.

Tarra’s story of coming back from life’s difficulties is an inspiring beacon of hope for us all!
