Columbia Legal Services

OVERVIEW

For decades, Columbia Legal Services has represented communities facing poverty and oppression. Through various legal tools available, we work together to achieve social and economic justice for all, and reveal and end actions that harm communities we serve. In 2020 & 2021, the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to re-imagine our annual fundraiser, Imagine Justice, as a virtual event and we made the most out of it, bringing together our supporters, client community, allies, and new friends for a fun and dynamic celebration.

With the acknowledgment that we each come to this work from unique places – in perspective, experience, identity, comfort with gathering in person, mobility and geography – and that COVID still impacts our lives in different ways, we are excited to announce the first-ever Imagine Justice Week, September 19-23, 2022. Rather than try a “one size fits all” event, the week will offer numerous ways to connect with CLS and our greater communities.

Imagine Justice Week - Save the Date 🕐

'Imagine Justice Week - Save the Date 🕐'

Dear friends of CLS, 

Imagine Justice has served as our “annual event” each fall, providing a chance to connect with supporters and partners, reflect on the work of the past year, and raise funds for the work ahead. As we approach the fall of 2022, we are reimagining how the event can best serve our statewide community.

With the acknowledgment that we each come to this work from unique places – in perspective, experience, identity, comfort with gathering in person, mobility and geography – and that COVID still impacts our lives in different ways, we are excited to announce the first-ever Imagine Justice Week, September 19-23, 2022. Rather than try a “one size fits all” event, the week will offer numerous ways to connect with CLS and our greater communities, such as: 

  • Panel discussions with community partners working to end mass incarceration and protect immigrant equity 
  • In-person receptions around the state 
  • Virtual Visionary Award Celebration 
  • At-home celebration kits featuring local restaurants and small businesses 
  • Youth drawing contest 
  • Trivia, games, and prizes via social media 
  • Readings and author discussions 
  • and more! 

We are inspired by the opportunity to engage with people across the state as we recommit to a Washington where we are all free. 

We hope you will join us!

Development & Communications Director
