September Events with Mary Leonard Law Society

Join MLLS at the Marion-Polk Lawyers’ Campaign for Equal Justice Luncheon!
Wednesday, September 17, 2014, 12:00-1:00 pm
Willamette Heritage Center, aka the Mission Mill Museum

Help us support the Campaign for Equal Justice by sitting with Mary Leonard Law Society at the Annual Marion-Polk Lawyer’s Campaign for Equal Justice Luncheon. There is no cost to attend; the luncheon is an excellent opportunity to socialize while learning more about the important work that legal aid is doing in Marion and Polk Counties and across the state.

While the lunch is free, we do encourage you to consider a contribution to the Campaign for Equal Justice. Supporting legal aid is a cause that MLLS members are passionate about and that aligns closely with our organizational goals of ensuring justice and equality in our community. Poverty in Oregon has increased by 61.5% since 2000, and we are currently 8th in the nation for poverty growth. Together, we can help make sure that our neighbors have fair and equal access to justice, regardless of income.

Please let us know if you are available to sit at an MLLS table by contacting us at maryleonardlawsociety@gmail.com
