The FPD returned to our tradition of an office holiday party in Seattle where we invite the CJA Panel, alumni and other friends of the FPD including folks at the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project. Thank you to all FPD staff who participated in the planning, organization, food preparation and funding for this extravaganza. The pot luck contributions were outstanding. Thank you to everyone who attended, particularly those who made the long journey in holiday season traffic from Tacoma and parts south of Tacoma.

 

Here are some photos from the event.
