TMLG is Proud to Announce Beth Terrell Named as Public Justice President
Beth Terrell, newly named President of Public Justice, joined the organization in 2002. More recently, she was a member of Public Justice’s team behind the “Yakima Dairy” cases, which won the 2016 Change Maker Award and led to a settlement in which four Washington State dairies agreed to make sweeping changes to stop the contamination of drinking water.
“Beth has long been an important partner to the Public Justice team, as an officer and leader on our Executive Committee, and as a central player in our strategic planning. Beth has also been co-counsel in several cases, donated generously for us to have some young attorneys work here as fellows, and as a close friend. Now, I am excited and honored that she will be our President – this is an important time in the organization’s history, and I’m looking forward to having her wise advice, her boundless energy and guidance in the year ahead,” said Executive Director Paul Bland. “As Public Justice grows and its mission becomes more critical and more important to diverse communities across the country, Beth is the perfect champion to help us maximize our impact and create real, lasting change.”
Public Justice is a 35 year strong organization which works to employ a team of staff attorneys who work with private attorneys nationwide to help fight injustice and preserve access to courts for ordinary people. According to Public Justice’s mission: “…we’ve made a long line of wrongdoers account for the injustices inflicted on people: deceptive pharmaceutical companies, irresponsible manufacturers, unscrupulous payday lenders, unjust employers, punitive credit card companies, unfair school athletic programs, inhumane government detention centers, dangerous food producers, reckless polluters and more.”
