This year, the Hustisia Award will be presented to Sister Brigid Perez, of the Religious Sisters of Mercy, who has been the program director of Alee Shelter since 2003. As an advocate for those whom John Adams called the “friendless and feeble,” Perez’s work with family violence victims embraces the theme of Law Day 2011, “The Legacy of John Adams.”
Perez entered the Sisters of Mercy convent in 1955, and took her final profession of vows in 1964. She earned a bachelor’s degree in education, with a minor in library science, from the University of Guam.
In 2006, she celebrated her Golden Jubilee as a Mercy Sister. Perez has taught in the Catholic schools in Guam and the Northern Marianas, and was the administrator for Mercy Heights and Infant of Prague Nursery.
She has also served as a member of the Family Violence Sexual Assault Task Force and the Coalition for Family Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault.
Perez has worked tirelessly to ensure not only the continued success of the Alee Shelter program, which has played an integral role in protecting and supporting victims of family violence and child abuse on Guam since its creation in 1981.
