On December 5, 2019, YSRP Co-Director Joanna Visser Adjoian was honored with the F. Sean Peretta Service Award by the Philadelphia Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division at their annual holiday party in Philadelphia. The award is given each year to recognize an individual who has devoted substantial time to an innovative or non-traditional program in service of the community. Mr. Peretta was a private practitioner who died suddenly at age 31, and was a revered community activist and mentor to young people in his home neighborhood. Ms. Visser Adjoian is grateful to the membership of the Young Lawyers Division for this award.
