“I have had a great respect for the efforts of many pro bono organizations and I am proud to support their activities. I learned of the Urban Justice Center several years ago and was honored to receive its 2012 Community Leadership Award. What particularly impresses me about the UJC is the commitment and creativity of Doug and his team in meeting the needs of the underserved members of our community. It is an honor to be name to UJC board and look forwarding to contributing to its worthy mission.”
