Mark was instrumental in the development of the Spence Association For Employee Rights (SAFER) during his time as L.A.W. Executive Director.

Since 2012, the state has recognized the day in honor of individuals who were killed while on the job and in 2015, Wyoming Governor Matt Mead spoke at Workers’ Memorial Day.
“I often think about how difficult it must be to pick up the phone, call a complete stranger, and ask for help,” says Mark. “I am thankful when people summon the courage to make that call because the law, when applied or practiced properly, is a tremendous equalizer that can change lives not only for our clients, but for our society as a whole.”
