Profiles: Attorney Virgie Suarez

Attorney Virginia Suarez packs a punch when it comes to standing up for the vulnerable and marginalized, which she has been doing for over two decades.

She was instrumental in the prosecution of a U.S. marine in the murder of transgender woman Jennifer Laude – a historic case which saw a U.S. officer convicted for the first time under the Visiting Forces Agreement. We learn more about her grace and grit as captured in the award-winning documentary “Call Her Ganda” directed by PJ Raval.

Find out how Atty. Virgie Suarez fights the good fight, what drives her, and what she’s doing to create a safe haven for women, especially in an increasingly toxic environment, made even more dangerous by a culture of misogyny and fear.
