Spokane Police Abuses: Past to Present

The People of Spokane vs. Law Enforcement Abuse, Impunity, Corruption, and Cover-up

Spokane’s Center for Justice

Posted by Arroyoribera on February 20, 2008

The website of the Center for Justice is an important resource in the search for justice in Spokane.

Jim Sheehan, founder of the Community Building and president of the board of the Center for Justice, stands for the spirit of justice and the need for compassion in the attainment of justice.

Though the webmaster is still in the process of working out some of the bugs, the newly updated CFJ website provides information on the Spokane River Project, a list of exceptional cases in which the CFJ has participated, case criteria, and staff biographies.

One of the most valuable and exciting — might I even say radical — projects of the Center for Justice is the Street Law program which since 2005 has provided legal advice to the community every weekend of the summer in Riverfront Park.  I would encourage the Center to make availability of language interpretation services an integral part of the project and part of the commitment of those attorneys and firms participating in the project.

Finally, the Center for Justice website provides useful links to legal resources in the Spokane area.

[Note: As an added bonus, the Center for Justice recently acquired the services of Jeffrey Finer, well-respected and long-time Spokane civil rights attorney.  And on its board of directors sits Jim Bamberger, another prominent civil rights lawyer in the state of Washington, now head of the Washington State office of Civil Legal Aid.]
