What Happens inside a Yale Secret Society by Omar Figueroa

Omar is a Latino immigrant born in Mexico, fluent in both Spanish and English. He is running for Judge of the Superior Court of Sonoma County to bring diversity and a
broad perspective to our justice system. Omar will share "What happens inside a Yale secret society" with our Rotary Club.
Omar learned English in our California public schools and served as an altar boy before he went on to Yale University and Stanford Law School on financial aid. With over 25
years of litigation experience in both state and federal courts, he is deeply committed to upholding justice with integrity.
Beyond his legal career, he is actively engaged in our community. He serves on the Board of Directors of the Sebastopol Center for the Arts, which has art events across
Sonoma County including Art at the Source and Art Trails, and has been elected to the Board of Directors of the Sonoma County Bar Association (SCBA term 2024-2026).
Also, he is a retired Chapter Leader of the Sonoma County Chapter of the ACLU.

Omar lives in Sebastopol with his wife, Barbara Marland and their sons Viggo and Magnus, ages 10 and 13. They sponsor their children’s soccer and little league teams,
and additionally, Omar serves as a school chaperone on school camping trips. This school year he climbed to the top of Mount Lassen with seventh graders and descended
to the bottom of Black Chasm cavern in the Sierra foothills with fourth graders. As a family man, homeowner, and small business owner, he has a personal stake in the
well-being and future of our community. Additionally, he is a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, a discipline that sharpens his problem-solving skills under pressure.
