On June 26, 2012, the Unemployment Law Project held their second annual “Party for the Friends of ULP.” The Unemployment Law Project is a statewide, not-for-profit law firm which provides advice, education, advocacy, services, and representation to unemployed workers. Their mission is to defend the rights and benefits of workers and unemployed people, to advise workers regarding benefits, and to prevent economic insecurity among Washington’s working population.
The June 26th event was a celebration of the hard work and good will of the Unemployment Law Project and their employees, volunteers and interns over the last year. Because they are a not-for-profit law firm and do not charge a fee for their services, their work is funded by grants and donations, and fundraising efforts at events such as the one on June 26th. Perey Law Group sponsored the event, and our lawyers and staff attended in support of the cause. The program featured a discussion by Executive Director Marc Lampson of project’s year in review & a presentation on what’s next for the ULP, as well as awards ceremony for their volunteers and Interns.
