As part of the annual National Pro Bono Celebration (October 20-26, 2013), the DC Pro Bono Week Celebration Planning Committee is coordinating the 5th annual Go Casual for Justice jeans day fundraiser to benefit DC's legal aid providers.
What started four years ago with 30 law firms raising $30,000 has expanded to include more than 100 law firms, corporate law departments, banks, and other workplaces supporting legal aid for the poor. Employees at participating workplaces donate $5 (or more!) to wear jeans to work on any day the office designates. Last year, 109 workplaces of all sizes raised $88,000. Let's raise even more this year!
All funds raised will support the DC Bar Foundation's legal services grants, training, and poverty lawyer loan repayment assistance programs benefiting DC's legal aid providers.
