Moffatt Thomas Teams Up to Raise Funds for “Access to Justice Idaho Campaign” FUND Run/Walk

Access to JusticeThe third annual Access to Justice Idaho Campaign FUND Run/Walk took place on Saturday, June 18, 2016.  This is a non-competitive family and dog-friendly 5k run/walk that raises funds and awareness for the Access to Justice Idaho Campaign.  The Access to Justice Idaho Campaign raises funds and support for the three principal providers of free civil legal services for poor and vulnerable Idahoans: DisAbility Rights Idaho, Idaho Legal Aid Services, and the Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program.  100% of the race registration went to the Access to Justice Idaho Campaign.

A Moffatt Thomas team of 14, including family members, participated in the uphill, hot, and at times dirt, road race.  In addition to fielding a fun team of race participants, Moffatt Thomas set up a table at the event and supplied other race participants with refreshments and a great reminder of Moffatt Thomas’ presence in the community.  Thank you to all who participated!

Access to Justice FUND Run, Moffatt Thomas

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.
