In Honor of the 10th Anniversary of the National Celebration, the Standing Committee is proud to announce Justice Elena Kagan will serve as Honorary Chair of the 2018 National Celebration of Pro Bono!
We are proud to join with ABA President Bob Carlson to encourage you to plan and participate in events focused on disaster resiliency as part of the 2018 National Celebration of Pro Bono.
Disaster survivors face countless legal issues—from insurance disputes, FEMA appeals, landlord tenant disputes, consumer fraud, health and education issues, and so much more.
Moreover, even before a disaster strikes, communities need legal assistance with disaster preparedness through business continuity planning, securing title documents, meeting insurance needs, and other assistance.
September is National Disaster Preparedness month, which is the perfect lead up to the 2018 National Celebration of Pro Bono. We are asking you to do your part to assist with disaster resiliency efforts by offering pro bono assistance to survivors or evacuees of disasters or by helping your community to prepare for a disaster.
As always, activities involving all aspects of pro bono are welcome and encouraged.
Highlight the events happening in your community by adding your event to the national registry!
