DETAILS

An attorney turned state representative for Easton was honored for her efforts to support civil legal aid.

State Rep. Claire Cronin, D-Easton, was awarded with a Beacon of Justice Award by the Equal Justice Coalition, an advocate for civil legal aid, during its Beacon of Justice Awards ceremony last week.

“We are incredibly grateful for the unwavering support given to civil legal aid by Representative Cronin,” said John Carroll, chair of the Equal Justice Coalition. “We cannot fulfill America’s promise of equal justice under the law without a robust, community-based network of legal aid programs.”
