Tarra Simmons Receives the WACDL Champion of Justice Award
Civil Survival Executive Director Tarra Simmons recently received the Washington Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer’s Champion of Justice Award. The Award “recognizes an individual who — through legislative, judicial, journalistic or humanitarian pursuits — defended constitutional rights and endeavored to ensure justice and due process for those accused of crime.”
Ms. Simmons devotes countless hours to promoting the interests of justice-involved individuals through her work as a Skadden Fellow at the Public Defender’s Office, co-chair of the Statewide Reentry Council, Executive Director of The Civil Survival Project and many other activities. We applaud her achievements and congratulate her on this well-deserved recognition.
