Legal Aid of Marin Presents: JAM FOR JUSTICE 2020



Due to COVID-19, we have moved our annual event online and hope that you can join us for a special, abbreviated version of Jam for Justice. Even now, our staff continue to serve the most vulnerable members of the Marin Community at rates much higher than normal. Over the course of one hour, we’ll share stories about of how we have adapted to deliver uninterrupted services to our community members—many of them frontline workers—and how you can help.


Our goal is to raise $100,000 to serve our people who need the most support, so join us for this free event (and bring your wallet!).

Meet our Awardees


Paul Haakenson, Beacon of Justice


The Honorable Paul Haakenson has for years been a dedicated supporter of Legal Aid of Marin, both personally and through the good offices of the Marin County Superior Court. It sounds like a cliché, but Judge Haakenson truly has been tireless and beyond generous in giving his time, wisdom, advice, consistent public support, and even meaningful financial sponsorship of our mission.


Yes, he is funny, and yes, he enjoys the reputation of being a fair and brilliant judge; but to Legal Aid of Marin, he exemplifies what it means for the members of our community who are in a position to help those who can’t help themselves to show up, consistently and with inspiring energy.



Felecia Gaston and Phoenix Project, a program of Performing Stars, Partner of Justice





Special Guest

Dr. Tom Peters, President and CEO of Marin Community Foundation

Dr. Peters is a leading national voice for community philanthropy, advocating and facilitating the dedication of private resources for the public good. Prior to joining the Foundation, Dr. Peters had a 24-year career as a county public health official. He served in the San Francisco Department of Public Health from 1974-1990, including eight years as Chief of Staff, and was Director of the Marin County Health & Human Services Department from 1991-1998.
