This year, they honor David Grabill, a 40-year law veteran who's worked on civil rights cases from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota to housing discrimination cases in Napa County. A Santa Rosa resident, Grabill participated of the March on Washington in 1963; he's currently focused on the struggle for affordable housing in the North Bay.
