We Give Back A TRADITION OF COMMUNITY SERVICE Justin’s Dad, Dr. Marc Strassburg, showed him that looking out for the safety and health of the community is priority number one. Here is Dad on a vaccination campaign to eradicate the disease small pox from Africa in 1970. (Dad is on the right). They succeeded at eradicating the disease from the continent. Justin spent his 18th birthday volunteering with the Children of the Basurero (Landfill) in Guatemala City. Hundreds of children still live in the City’s garbage dump in the worst conditions on Earth. Justin will never forget the rancid smell, and the sight of children- some as young as five years old- running towards arriving dump trucks, climbing in while the trucks were still moving, to try to collect recyclables. He will never forget the tragic sight of little children sniffing orange model airplane glue, sold to them for pennies like candy by local vendors. A TRADITION THAT CONTINUES TODAY In 2010, Justin visited a village outside of Kisumu in Kenya. He went there with his good friend (an ER doctor) to help set up emergency medical services for the villages. After he returned to the U.S. he partnered with the Consulate General of Kenya, Her Excellency Ambassador Dr. Wenwa Akinyi Odinga Oranga, to found the Jaramogi Odinga Oginga Foundation- USA. He also served as Pro Bono Counsel to the Consulate General of the Republic of Kenya. SGW lawyers serve as Pro Bono Counsel to the Los Angeles County Filipino American Employees Association. Nathan Wei and Justin Strassburg have been free lawyers for this organization since 2015. Every year SGW lawyers attend the City of Arcadia’s Law Day to provide the public with free legal advice.
