Our Chili Cook-Off to Support the Campaign for Equal Justice (CEJ)

chil cook-off imageWe at Ring Bender, in partnership with Geosyntec Consulting’s Portland office, are thrilled to share the success of our recent Chili Cook-Off! This event was more than just a culinary showdown; it was a gathering of community and compassion, aimed at supporting a vital cause – the Campaign for Equal Justice (CEJ).

Established in 1991, CEJ serves as a beacon of hope for many in Oregon, ensuring that equal access to justice is not just a privilege but a right for all. CEJ functions as the backbone of Oregon’s legal aid programs, having raised over $33.5 million since inception. These funds are crucial in aiding low-income and senior Oregonians with critical legal needs in areas like family law, domestic violence, and housing.

The need for legal assistance has only grown, accentuated by challenges like the Covid pandemic and wildfires. In 2022 alone, Oregon’s legal aid programs served almost 23,000 families and individuals, making a profound difference in their lives.

As a law firm deeply committed to justice and community service, Ring Bender is proud to have hosted this event. The funds raised are more than just monetary contributions; they represent hope, support, and the promise of justice for those who need it most.

If you would like to contribute to this noble cause, it’s not too late. Every donation, big or small, helps in providing essential legal assistance to thousands across Oregon.
