Community Safety Programs

We Work Hard To Make A Safer Community

Giving Back to Our Communities

Communities are only as strong as the support they receive from the people who live in them. The people at Corson & Johnson Law make ongoing contributions to our communities both through the firm and through  individual outreach.

 

Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund

“OLSPIF” is a nonprofit student group that raises money to support law students working over the summer in unpaid public interest positions.  In a time when fewer paid summer legal jobs are available to law students,  OLSPIF-funded work has become an important option for students.  In 2019, OLSPIF helped support 15 law students in doing public interest work.  A long-time supporter of OLSPIF, in 2020 Corson & Johnson funded a full scholarship.  Lara Johnson helped to start the law student public interest fund at her law school when she was a law student, and Brandon Moore is a board member of the Oregon Law Students Public Interest Fund.

Bike Helmet Donations Put Safety Within Reach

The number one safety feature of any bicycle is on the rider’s head: the helmet. But good bike helmets can be financially out of reach for some families. The Brain Bucket Brigade is a program we started to provide bike helmets for kids who might otherwise not have access to this critical safety gear. We also work to educate parents and kids on the topic of helmet safety through our Brain Bucket Brigade pamphlet and videos.

We work with Bicycle Way of Life in Eugene to give bike helmets to kids and ensure that each one has the proper fit. A special thank you to Bicycle Way of Life for all their help! If you would like to have a Brain Bucket Brigade Helmet Giveaway at your school, please email us.

Direction Service—Families of Children with Disabilities

The non-profit organization, Direction Service, is a one-stop source for information and assistance on programs for families of children with disabilities. It has helped people with special needs, and their families, live their lives to the fullest since 1976. This program stabilizes, strengthens, and empowers families, helping them put the pieces together so they can be safe, secure and successful. Lara Johnson served on the Board of Directors for years, and is the organization’s immediate past President.

CASA—Powerful Voice For Abused And Neglected Children

One of our favorite causes is Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA), which provides a powerful voice for abused and neglected children. About a thousand Lane County children live in foster care. In an overburdened system, these children risk slipping through the cracks and suffering from further abuse. CASA volunteers have the power to help prevent further tragedies. They speak for the child in the courtroom, representing the child’s best interests, and work to move the child as quickly and effectively as possible through the system and into a safe, permanent home.

Life Jacket Lending Program

The simple practice of wearing a life jacket while on the river saves lives. Corson & Johnson supports the McKenzie River Life Jacket Lending Program, which offers life jackets to children and adults who would otherwise be without one for the day. The Life Jacket Lending Program is simple: you pick up a life jacket, leave your name, and return it at the end of the day. This program, organized by McKenzie Fire and Rescue, promotes water safety and Personal Flotation Device (PFD) use in the spring and summer, when McKenzie River use is at its highest.

Campaign For Equal Justice

The Campaign for Equal Justice has the missing of making equal access to justice a reality for all Oregonians.  We believe that access to justice is a fundamental right, and the Campaign for Equal Justice contributes to the health and safety of Oregon communities.  In 2019, Corson & Johnson was again recognized by the Campaign for Equal Justice as a Defender of Justice.

Trauma Healing Project

The Trauma Healing Project is a non-profit organization that provides healing and wellness programs for survivors of trauma. Importantly, the Project also trains medical providers, counselors, social workers, and educators to understand how trauma affects people not just physically, but also how trauma changes people’s emotional and psychological responses. Health care providers and educators learn how to better understand, communicate with, and help trauma survivors in their recovery. Two Corson & Johnson attorneys have served on the Board of Directors for the Trauma Healing Project, and Beatrice Grace served as Secretary of the Board.
