This commemorative 5th year celebration of Black History Month inspired the law firm of delancyhill, P.A. to create the award of Firm Partner Star, previously offered to Ruth Shack, Dorothy Jenkins-Fields, David Wilson, and Babacar M’Bow for their contributions to uplifting African-American communities of South Florida     

'The recent election of our 44th President, Barack Obama, reminds us of the personal power that one citizen can make when engaged in their local communities.  We are inspired by Commissioner Ferguson’s passion for community engagement and elevating our voice to the highest level of government,” stated Marlon A. Hill, partner, delancyhill.     

This year’s honoree, Betty Ferguson, is a community organizer, educator, and former county commissioner for Miami-Dade County. As the founder of UP-PAC (Unrepresented Peoples Positive Action Council), over twenty years ago, Commissioner Ferguson has been a catalyst for political and economic empowerment in South Florida’s Black community by inspiring change at the grassroots level.  Every Saturday morning at 9 a.m., UP-PAC faithfully meets at Greater New Bethel Baptist Church for lively debates, while seeking answers to challenging community questions and finding actionable solutions for community needs. 

“In 2009, we will be recommitting ourselves to the core values of America.  As a friend and community partner to our Firm, we are moved by the spark of Ferguson’s work and accomplishments, commented Michelle A. Delancy, managing partner of delancyhill.
