Speaker bio:

Catherine Bernard is a Brookhaven attorney specializing in indigent defense and constitutional advocacy. She attended Emory University and went on to earn her law degree at the University of Virginia. In 2009, she became a public defender in Dublin, Georgia, and developed a deep appreciation for the challenges faced by the poorest and most vulnerable Georgians — most of which are caused by big government. She was the Chair of the Brookhaven Redevelopment Referendum Committee and led the way in successfully defeating Redevelopment Powers Law in November 2014. In 2015, once again realizing big government programs were being created at a tremendous cost to Georgia citizens, Catherine testified before the Georgia General Assembly on several important issues including criminal justice reform. In 2014, she was a candidate for Georgia State Representative House District 80.
