BJT Supports Local Charities
In the past two years, BJT has donated $50,000 to local charities to help homeless and low-income families and victims of disaster and illness. We are proud to support Lifelong AIDS Alliance, Helpline House, Community Foundation of North Central Washington, Compass Housing Alliance, Mary’s Place, Northwest Justice Project, Cancer for College, Unemployment Law Project, Center for Children and Youth Justice, and the YMCA of Greater Seattle.
In the rapid growth of the online gig economy, many workers have felt squeezed and at times dehumanized by a business structure that promises independence but often leaves them at the mercy of increasingly powerful companies. Some are beginning to band together in search of leverage and to secure what they see as fairer treatment from the platforms that make the work possible.
The Legal Foundation of Washington Received a Settlement Award Contribution of $596,000 from a class action settled by Breskin Johnson & Townsend. The Foundation funds programs and supports policies and initiatives which enable the poor and the most vulnerable to overcome barriers in the civil justice system. BJT is proud to support this group and their mission.
