NWIRP Awards

I just got home from the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project's annual gala and auction, where the following received awards:

Congratulations, all!

Some words of inspiration:
In her acceptance, Ann Benson quoted Gandhi: "We must be the change we wish to see in the world" and reminded us to work for better lives for all each day.

And one of the attorneys from Gibbs Houston Pauw reminisced about setting up the firm 25 years ago, when the newspapers were full of stories about upwardly mobile attorneys at big firms. He said he and his partners wanted to practice law in such a way that when they retired they could look back and believe that they had made a difference in people's lives and improved their community.
