Block has been appointed to serve on the Host Committee for the 2017 Conference of the National Consortium on Racial and Ethnic Fairness in the Courts to be held in St. Louis in May.

It shares the collective knowledge of these groups with courts, law enforcement, and the community. In addition, it provides technical assistance and expertise to commissions.
Block, an active member of the Missouri Supreme Court Commission on Racial and Ethnic Fairness, served as a judge in the Circuit Court of St. Louis County for 25 years before returning to the private practice of law. Her practice includes family law matters, such as dissolution of marriage, modification requests, grandparent visitation, and adoptions, as well as probate matters such as guardianships and involuntary commitments. She also represents individuals with Children’s Division findings of abuse or neglect, juvenile court referrals, and student discipline matters.
