Our new facebook contest opened today!  Everyone who posts their favorite justice quote will be entered in a contest for a nifty OneJustice water bottle.  Got two favorite quotes? Post them both!  Are you on this blog page, facebook and LinkedIn?  Post on all three!  Staff will select their favorite of all the favorites – and the winner will get a OneJustice water bottle.

This contest ends Dec. 8, so don’t miss it – and make sure you like us on facebook, too!

Congratulations to the last facebook contest winner, Steven Schulman, Partner at Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld who leads the firm’s worldwide pro bono practice.  In the last contest, we asked folks to guess the secret identity of a VIP Justice Bus guest in our office.  The guest was the Chief Justice of the Yurok Tribal Court, who was in our office to start planning the January 2013 Justice Bus trip to serve 400 veterans who are members of the Yurok Tribe and are facing legal barriers to benefits and medical care.  Living in Del Norte and Humboldt counties, they are over 300 miles away from the closest nonprofit legal organization that can help.

Steven guessed both “Justice Sandra Day O’Connor” and “Cookie Monster” – winning hands down for both accuracy and creativity!  Congrats Steven – enjoy that water bottle!

    Here’s my favorite! “In matters of truth and justice, there is no difference between large and small problems, for issues concerning the treatment of people are all the same.” Albert Einstein

    This is one that brings to mind our Justice Bus Project: “Real education should consist of drawing the goodness and the best out of our own students. What better books can there be than the book of humanity?”– Cesar Chavez

    One of my favorite quotes of all time: “Beware of a half truth; it may be the wrong half”. I’m told this is an old Danish proverb.

    “It is in justice that the ordering of society is centered” Aristotle.
    Our world sometimes seems more than a little off center. Justice, actively pursued, will get us back on the right course.

    It’s a well-known quote, but one that I think about a lot in our work: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Martin Luther King, Jr.
