Nearly 400 walkers recently attended The Salvation Army William Booth Legal Aid Clinic’s (WBLAC) second annual Walk for Justice at the Detroit Zoo.  

Several former WBLAC clients attended to show their appreciation, including Amoy Henderson, who publicly expressed her gratitude to the crowd prior to the event, saying, “the clinic’s help was a true blessing.” 

The local judiciary was well represented, including Wayne County Circuit Chief Judge Colombo and many others from Wayne and Oakland counties, as well as key staffers from the Third Circuit’s Friend of the Court office. 

“The clinic provides critical services to many of the Court’s self-represented litigants through its clinical programs and the Walk For Justice is a great way for the Third Circuit Court to show its appreciation,” said Zenell Brown, Wayne County Circuit Court administrator.  

This year’s event featured a silent auction offering a wide variety of items and outings contributed by local businesses, artists and entrepreneurs. The funds raised will help the clinic continue to provide high quality legal services for low income families and individuals throughout metro Detroit.

Since 1994, The William Booth Legal Aid Clinic has been providing legal counsel to participants of The Salvation Army Detroit Harbor Light System, as well as individuals within the community at or below the poverty level.
