A Message From The Executive Director

Dear all, during these hot summer days I hope you are making time for rest and staying healthy and well. Although we continue to live through this time of uncertainty and stress, I wanted to share a few bright notes with you.

We were graced once again with wonderful summer law clerks. They adapted with us as we pivoted to a virtual and socially-distanced summer together. I miss them already.
I am so appreciative of RMO, LLP for sponsoring this newsletter, and for all of you for being a part of our family of supporters and friends. We are stronger together.

Yvana, Sarah, and Emily clerked with us during this unusual summer. These three smart and flexible women took on a variety of projects and case assignments, adapting to changes alongside us. We are so glad to have had the opportunity to work with them.

Although pandemic realities put a bit of a crimp in our usual summer activities, clerks and staff enjoyed a virtual game night as well as a “socially-distanced” lunch, organic tomato tasting, and an ice cream social in our office backyard.

This year’s 5th Annual Volunteer Appreciation Reception was a virtual event. Current and former LQ volunteers, including board and leadership council members, came together on Zoom to catch up.

Sarah Daniels won the night’s “Everything but the Kitchen Sink” beverage challenge with her tropical cocktail. Congrats Sarah, enjoy that UberEats giftcard!
We are so thankful for everything our volunteers do to support the LQ mission and help make great client outcomes possible.
