The Contra Costa County Bar Association joined the effort to support adequate court funding by co-sponsoring the “Stand up for Justice” rally on April 18, 2012 in San Francisco. State Attorney Kamala Harris, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, Bay Area Legal Aid Executive Director Ramon Arias, and many other speakers joined the rally, organized by the Bar Association of San Francisco and co-sponsored by numerous Bar Associations throughout the state.
