Each year, the Legal Foundation of Washington’s Board of Trustees commemorates the extraordinary contributions of former Board President and attorney, Charles A. Goldmark, who helped establish a more just, equitable legal aid system in Washington State during his lifetime.
The Goldmark Award recognizes the exceptional leadership of an individual, group, or organization in providing, promoting, or advocating for equal justice for Washington’s low-income individuals, families, and communities.
LFW’s Goldmark Award Committee calls for nominations that recognize outstanding contributions made to increase justice for all through the judicial system, public policy arena, and/or community outreach and education. In recognition of the legal aid community’s commitment to race equity as outlined in the 2018-2020 State Plan for the Coordinated Delivery of Civil Legal Aid to Low-Income People, nomination of people and organizations
focusing on race equity work is encouraged.
Nominations must be in writing and may be supported by letters and other documentation. All submitted materials become property of LFW.
