BOB DICKERSON TRIBUTE
Thank you for the wonderful article
on my brother, Bob Dickerson. (“
Leaving the World a Better Place” by Robin
Lindley, SEP 2015 NWLawyer). It captured much of what was amazing about
him and the work he did. He never
gave up. His kindness still echoes in
my heart. One of the last initiatives he
worked on was legislation to bring an
end to the preventable deaths of children and mothers in our world. Near
the end of his life, he worked with Congressman Reichert to introduce legislation called the Reach Every Mother and
Child Act. This bill has already been
introduced in the Senate (S. 1911) and
soon to be introduced in the House.
This bill puts reforms into law for the
United States Agency for International
Development (USAID) that make it
more efficient and transparent. This
bipartisan legislation includes no new
money, relying instead on money more
efficiently used. So if you, like me, are
inspired by my brother, give a call or
email to your senators and representatives and ask them to support this life-saving legislation.
Willie Dickerson, Snohomish
I just received the 80 page “green” issue in my “regular” mailbox — oh the
irony! Although California trails much
of the Northwest on many environmental issues, it would be great if WSBA
took a signal from the State Bar of California and sent NWLawyer only electronically. I’ll look forward to that day.
