Hope and Healing: Law Alumni Sharon and Stanley King

Sharon and Stanley King, founders of the King and King LLC law firm based in Woodbury, New Jersey, met as Rutgers Law students and have practiced civil rights law for more than 20 years. They were honored with the Rutgers Law Mary Philbrook Public Interest Award in October.

“On the social justice front, I am encouraged. It is the first time in my adult life that I have seen so many different racial groups come together and realize there is a problem. We can be happy if there is progress, even if there isn’t complete change. I am optimistic both on the health front as well as the racial justice front that we are going to have some changes come out of 2020.”

“Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said there is either ‘chaos or community.’ What are our options if we are not hopeful? Having hope is better than having despair. Given the options we have and reflecting on COVID-19 and the racial reckoning, I am hopeful that we can choose community and build upon it.”

—Stanley King RLAW’94
