Justice at Work
June 2014
It's hard to believe, but June 30th is just days away, marking the end of our 2013-14 Campaign for Justice. We are so grateful for all of you who have stepped up again this year in the name of equal justice.
 
If you haven't had an opportunity yet to make your donation, we hope you'll do so now by clicking here. We don't want to get to June 30th without you.  
Donors Applauded 

  

Over 200 donors braved the rain, hail and tornado warnings on May 22nd to attend the Legal Aid Foundation's Donor Recognition Reception at the Ralph Carr Judicial Center. Guests enjoyed food, drink and conversation, while also hearing from Colorado Supreme Court Chief Justice Nancy Rice and Tina Smith, a former legal aid client who is currently serving as Board Chair of Colorado Legal Services.
