2003 Stories

D. Michael Dale ’75 Awarded 2003 Echoing Green Fellowship
Echoing Green has selected workers’ rights advocates D. Michael Dale ’75 and Mia Butzbaugh as the recipients of a 2003 Echoing Green Fellowship. The fellowship awards them $90,000 in seed funding and technical assistance over two years to launch the Portland-based Northwest Workers’ Justice Project. The project will work to expand access to legal services for low-wage and undocumented workers through advocacy, education and referrals.

Dale, a nationally recognized expert in migrant law, has represented low-wage and immigrant workers for more than 25 years. The Northwest Workers’ Justice Project is one of 10 projects chosen to receive the 2003 Echoing Green Fellowship, chosen from a pool of nearly 1,000 applicants in 60 countries. Fellows are selected based on a rigorous application process that includes the creation of a detailed organizational plan and a series of in-person interviews before a panel of veteran business and nonprofit leaders in New York City. Judges evaluate applicants’ leadership and entrepreneurial skills, creativity and the potential of their ideas to deliver long-term social change.
