Moving Forward in a Post-Pandemic World
The 2021 Celebration will center on the legal needs of vulnerable communities resulting from the pandemic. As we move forward in a post-pandemic world, we encourage programs to recognize the efforts of pro bono attorneys during the pandemic and to focus on the many impacts on vulnerable communities, such as evictions, housing injustice, racial disparities, and challenges to accessing legal services. The 2021 Celebration is an opportunity to connect pro bono providers and attorneys across the nation.
We hope you will join us in 2021 to showcase the incredible difference that pro bono lawyers make to our nation, to our system of justice, to our communities, and most of all, to the clients they serve.
