Local attorney to be honored by Jewish Council for Public Affairs

The Jewish Council for Public Affairs presents its prestigious Tikkun Olam Awards annually to individuals who have displayed extraordinary efforts to make the world a better place and a passion for civic engagement and justice. The 2020 honorees include David Bohm, a St. Louis attorney and principal at Danna McKitrick, P.C., and long-time JCPA executive board member and Policy Advisory Committee chair. 

Bohm has drafted several bills that have been enacted as state statutes, including a suicide prevention and awareness bill requiring all school districts in Missouri to adopt this plan suitably for each district. 

The award will be presented at a reception on Sunday, Feb. 9 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel, Washington, D.C. as part of the JCPA national conference (for more information, visit jewishpublicaffairs.org/JCPA2020 ).
