Inner City Law Center (ICLC) will recognize Munger, Tolles & Olson at its annual awards luncheon on June 6. The recognition is for Munger Tolles' longstanding and ongoing generous support of ICLC. The ICLC is a non-profit, public interest law firm working to serve the poor, specializing in issues that plague veterans and the homeless.
Munger Tolles has been a supporter of Inner City Law Center since it opened in 1980, with Munger Tolles partners acting as one of ICLC's first board members, general counsel in the 1980s, board president from 1998-2001 and advisory board members.
In announcing this honor, ICLC specifically mentioned Munger Tolles' work in assisting ICLC's ongoing efforts “to convince the Los Angeles City Council to not pass the so called ‘Community Care Facilities Ordinance,’ which threatens to devastate affordable housing for people with disabilities and low-income families.” In addition, ICLC noted our attorneys work in developing The Shriver Housing Project, the center’s newest homelessness prevention project. Our attorneys have also been co-counsel with ICLC attorneys in their class action lawsuit on behalf of thousands of severely disabled homeless veterans in Los Angeles.
