City of Los Angeles lawyer Mike Feuer announced on Thursday that he had appointed a city attorney general as his special assistant and general counsel for the recently created Department of Civil and Human Rights.
Heather Aubry, as designated equity officer, will lead the prosecution's efforts to promote diversity, justice and inclusion, said Feuer.
"I am delighted that Heather has agreed to take on this challenging new role. Her track record and leadership skills within and outside of our office make her the ideal person for a job with such broad and important responsibilities," said Feuer. "But Heather is more than the sum of her great and successful experience. She is a leader with depth, whose dedication to justice and equality will fuel her daily work as my special assistant. "
Aubry was also commissioned by Feuer to take a leadership role in identifying key opportunities for the prosecutor to continue to stake positions on key local and national issues that speak for inclusion and fairness, whether through litigation, Amicus support, or legislation or public relations said fire.
"I am honored that the Attorney General Feuer selected me for this position at this important moment," said Aubry. "The difficult talks have to continue, everyone has to be heard, and then we have to take action by working together for a fairer and fairer society."
Aubry's father, Larry Aubry, was a well-known activist in the Los Angeles Afro-American community for decades, but died in May, according to prosecutors.
"Heather is a beacon of advocacy that will use her tremendous talent to create justice and justice for underrepresented communities," said Capri Maddox, executive director of the Civil and Human Rights Department in Los Angeles.
Aubry has a 25-year career with the public prosecutor's office, where she has worked in the areas of crime, civil law, and community affairs, including general litigation and general legal advice for public security.
