CEJ helps connect volunteers, donors, legal aid lawyers, and low-income Oregonians in regions across the state. Our volunteers promote increased awareness about the civil legal needs of low-income Oregonians and encourage participation among their peers. Committees hold monthly meetings and assign outreach efforts. County bar associations also chip in, making financial contributions and using their newsletters as a way to update people about legal aid and honor donors. Committees reach out to volunteers to draft and sign fundraising letters. It is an impressive and coordinated effort.
By encouraging a friendly competition in giving among all the regions of the state, the Justice Cup and Equity Cup capture the spirit of Oregon lawyers supporting equal justice for all Oregonians.
We had impressive efforts in many regions this year, but once again the southern Oregon regions of Jackson County and Grants Pass were standouts. Jackson County is taking home the Justice Cup for an incredible seventh consecutive year, with almost 41% of the lawyers in the community donating to CEJ (the statewide average is around 20%). Grants Pass is holding on to the Equity Cup after once again increasing their participation, this year by an amazing 75%! Almost 27% of Grants Pass lawyers gave to the Campaign.
