In Memory of Tom Williamson

The Board and staff of the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs are deeply saddened by Tom Williamson’s death. Tom was an integral part of the Washington Lawyers’ Committee community. He was an inspiring leader, a generous mentor and an unfailing friend for decades. He was a former Chair of the Committee and handled significant Committee cases. Tom was a role model for young lawyers, demonstrating that compassion and fairness can play a significant part in a legal career. We are grateful to have had the opportunity to benefit from Tom’s visionary leadership and will miss him dearly.
