Board of Directors

Dick Odgers

The Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC), along with the legal community and social justice advocates, are mourning the passing of our dear colleague, Dick Odgers. We had the privilege of his support and service on our Board of Directors since 2002. Not only was he key to the success of the ILRC, he was, in the words and spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., “a drum major for justice.”  He was passionate in his support of immigrants and civil liberties, and cared deeply about the quality of legal services available to low-income people and others who are new to our country.  He matched his passion with a keen strategic sense of how to get things done, and was indefatigable and inspiring in his work with his fellow board members and ILRC staff to help us turn our goals into reality. We will always remember him for his profound dedication to improving the lives of low-income, marginalized, and disenfranchised individuals and communities. The family has requested donations in his memory be made to multiple organizations including the Immigrant Legal Resource Center. Make a memorial gift in honor of Dick Odgers and please include under Order Comments: “In memory of Dick Odgers.” A memorial service in his memory will be held at the City Club, 155 Sansome Street, San Francisco, on Tuesday, September 23, 2014, at 2 p.m. For more information visit: www.pillsburylaw.com/richard-odgers.
