During the month of March, ABC 27 is teaming up with The Oasis Center for Women & Girls to recognize trailblazers in our community. It's all part of Women's History month, highlighting the women and girls truly making a difference in Tallahassee and beyond.

According to The Oasis Center for Women & Girls, trailblazers are women and girls who are smashing barriers and shattering glass ceilings, making it possible for other girls and women to leave their mark.

Elizabeth Ricci is an award-winning immigration attorney. Ricci has impacted the Tallahassee community through more than twenty years of pro bono service to foreign-born military veterans, widows, and abused children, to help them seek justice.

In all The Oasis Center for Women & Girls honored seven people at this year's Trailblazers Luncheon at the AC Marriott in Tallahassee.
