BENEFITING: LAW ROCKS INC
EVENT DATE: Mar 24, 2017
Diversion (Latham & Watkins), 2014 and 2015 champs, will rock for Bet Tzedek.
Bet, Tzedek, The House of Justice, provides free legal assistance to thousands of people who would otherwise be denied access to the legal system underpinning our democracy. Founded in 1974 by a few individuals seeking to act upon a central tenet of Jewish law and tradition “Tzedek, tzedek, tirdof — Justice, justice you shall pursue,” Bet Tzedek provides legal assistance to residents of Los Angeles County, regardless of their racial religious or ethnic background. Bet Tzedek’s mission, therefore, is to pursue equal justice for all.
Formed in late 2012 in anticipation of the 2nd Annual Law Rocks LA, Diversion is a band comprised entirely of Latham & Watkins personnel that has played consistently for the past four years since that first show at the Whisky. Throughout the year, the band performs regularly at a variety of clubs throughout Southern California such as the Troubadour, House of Blues, the Viper Room, and Molly Malones, as well as internal Latham events and other gatherings, often raising money for charities.
