Thank you – from the bottom of our hearts.
The OneJustice network demonstrated its incredible power to come together and effect change this week.
On Thursday night, over 45 corporate sponsors and over 300 OneJustice supporters came together for the annual “Opening Doors to Justice” event. In addition to honoring Bruce Ives of HP, Jeffrey Brand of USF School of Law, and Yvonne Mariajimenez of Neighborhood Legal Services of Los Angeles County, the network also raised over $195,000 to support OneJustice’s programs that remove barriers to justice throughout the state.
This included an on-the-spot challenge to raise $40,000 to fund seven brand-new Justice Bus trips next year – which the OneJustice network blew out of the water, raising almost $43,000 by the end of the evening.
And so meaningful – not just for OneJustice, but most of all for the over 150 low-income Californians living in rural and isolated communities who will now receive legal assistance as a result of the network’s generosity. These veterans, seniors, children with disabilities and immigrant youth are the true beneficiaries of the power of this incredible network.
Aren’t you inspired? We are! And it’s still possible to be a part of this movement to get more Justice Bus trips on the road – you can still contribute to the Justice Bus Fund online. Let’s keep this momentum going!
We also showed our new Justice Bus Video for the first time – you can watch it here, too, or on our website here.
And enjoy the photo slideshow of the evening below. Thank you to everyone who was there for making it an evening that will – for hundreds of thousands of Californians in need – make all the difference.
