I was happy and flattered to receive the Innovations Award at the Equal Justice Conference yesterday.
Far beyond the undeniable personal pleasure, however, I’d like to think that this award represents a recognition on all sides of the extent to which the full range of services needed for the continuum of access includes everything from self-represented services through to full representation.
Working together with this common vision, and with right on our side, surely we will prevail!
Update: Here is a link to the awards ceremony. First is the Pro Bono Award to Sheila Gaddis of Volunteer Legal Services Project of Monroe County, New York. Then Don Saunders describes and presents the Innovations Award at about 7 min and 15 seconds in.
Congratulations on a well deserved honor!
All of us are in this together–and Richard you show us that–thank you for all you do and all you teach us. I could not think of a better time to acknowledge your marvelous contribution to the field.
Congratulations – you deserve it.
