Moffatt Thomas Teams up to Support “Access to Justice Fund – 4th Annual Run/Walk”
Moffatt Thomas is a proud sponsor and participant in the 4th Annual Access to Justice FUND Run/Walk hosted by the Idaho Law Foundation. The event took place on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at Fort Boise Park. The event is a noncompetitive family and pet-friendly 5k run/walk that raises funds and awareness for the Access to Justice Idaho Campaign.
More than 200 participants joined together to raise funds for the “Access to Justice Idaho Campaign,” including a Moffatt Thomas team of 13 comprising of attorneys, staff, and family members. Moffatt Thomas hosted an information table and supplied a variety of heart-healthy snacks and refreshments as a token of Moffatt Thomas’s presence and involvement in the community. The event resulted in a major success, as participants collectively raised over $8,200 for the Access to Justice Idaho Campaign.
Access to Justice Idaho is a statewide campaign to fund legal services for low-income residents and persons with disabilities. Access to Justice Idaho will raise funds to provide support for the three principal providers of free civil legal services for poor and vulnerable Idahoans. There is an urgent need for funding for Disability Rights Idaho (DRI), Idaho Legal Aid Services (ILAS), and Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program (IVLP), which have seen drastic cuts in their funding sources at a time when demand for legal services is at an all-time high.
Lawyers understand how important it is that all citizens have access to justice and that a lack of legal assistance can thwart this access. Because of the importance of legal services – regardless of ability to pay – attorneys have supported Access to Justice campaigns across the country.
