3/14/16 Group Watch: New Office of Minority Affairs

Governor Robert Bentley signed an executive order last week creating an office of minority affairs. According to Governor Bentley, office staff will offer guidance on issues impacting minorities and women with the goal of improving the quality of life for both groups. He went on to say education, health, political engagement, criminal justice and race relations are among the issues he expects the office to offer guidance on. Bentley appointed Mobile native and former attorney for Birmingham law firm Maynard, Cooper and Gale, Nichelle Nix to head up the office. Nix attended Spelman College, Emory University and the University of Alabama Law School.
