Eastside Legal Assistance Program’s 9th Annual Breakfast for Justice will be held on May 22nd and members of Washington Women Lawyers are invited to join us for the event. During our keynote, we will hear from Monika Kalra Varma, the Executive Director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area and I’m sure she will inspire us to recommit to helping those in our community who need us!
For 30 years ELAP has been working to make the legal system more accessible to those most in need by providing free civil legal services to low-income residents of King County and provides brief services and limited representation to survivors of domestic violence who need protection orders and assistance with their legal safety planning. Last year we helped more than 2,500 people with their legal issues. As the leader in the Bar, I know you realize how important it is to have access to legal assistance to advocate successfully, especially in court.
