Community Matters at ABK

Both Susan and Carolyn want ABK to thrive, in part, by providing assistance to those in their community who may need just a little extra help. Both attorneys have a long-standing history of caring about more than just the practice of law; they both care for their communities as well.

Community Matters to Carolyn Anderson

For all of her adult life, Carolyn has been very active in her community, focusing her efforts on helping those who have fallen on "hard times." After graduating from college, Carolyn joined the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and moved to Seattle to work full-time in a shelter for homeless women and children. She lived in a Catholic lay-community with other young adults and embraced the JVC's credo of "simplicity, spirituality, community and social justice." She continued this work throughout law school, where she volunteered regularly with the General Assistance Advocacy Project, the Workers' Rights Clinic, and the National Lawyers' Guild. After becoming licensed as an attorney, Carolyn volunteered in Seattle, representing people in their unemployment appeals on a pro bono basis. In California, she worked with the San Francisco Bar Association's AIDS Legal Referral Panel representing people with AIDS against their creditors. In Ashland, Carolyn remained very active in her community, working with the Outreach Committee at Trinity Episcopal Church and volunteering with the Food for Friends program. She was a founding member of the Board of Directors of the non-profit Options for Homeless Residents of Ashland ("OHRA"), and she has helped staff local homeless shelters during the winter months. Carolyn has helped a number of local non-profit organizations get started and she continues to advise these groups on employment and other legal issues.

Community Matters to Susan Bradley Krant

Susan has always had strong ties to her community and to organizations important to her. From her high school years to the present, her volunteer efforts have been paramount in her life. Throughout her middle and high school years, Susan volunteered in programs to help autistic youth. During high school and law school, Susan volunteered in political campaigns in California. After practicing law for 12 years, Susan took a hiatus when she relocated to Ashland, choosing to actively participate in her children's schools and her communities' development. She worked with art programs in the elementary and middle schools, organizing and running a local Cub Scout Pack, fund-raising, and volunteering in local soccer and baseball programs. Susan coordinated self-esteem seminars for girls in Yreka, participated in philanthropic endeavors through Soroptomists International of Yreka, and served on the Board of Directors of that organization. She volunteered in the courts in Jackson County assisting with legal research for civil law matters and currently volunteers as a court-appointed FED mediator. Susan assists with the local high school snowboard team's fundraising and other events.
