New CLC Fellowship Created in Honor of Bruce and Martha Sattler

     Bruce and Martha Sattler

The Colorado Lawyers Committee is pleased to announce the creation of the Sattler Civil Rights Fellowship, funded from the generous legacy gift from the estates of Bruce and Martha Sattler.

Bruce Sattler was one of the 1978 founders of the Lawyers Committee, a long-time CLC Board member (and Board Chair), a civil rights champion, and a great friend.  Bruce was a leader in the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Colorado for 45 years.  He also served on the boards of Colorado Legal Services and Free Speech TV, and worked with many other nonprofits.

Martha Sattler was a true supporter of civil liberties and long-time volunteer administrator for the Colorado Lawyers Committee Hate Crimes Education Task Force.  After a successful career as a scientist, Martha began a long second career with the ACLU of Colorado, volunteering on the Board, and later working as Intake Director and Associate Director.  Martha also volunteered for many other organizations, including Project Safeguard, Community Shares, Summer Scholars, and the Legal Center.

The Sattler Civil Rights Fellowship will fund a law student every other summer to work at the Colorado Lawyers Committee, beginning in 2017.

Thank you, Bruce and Martha.
