Virtual Pro Bono Reception

  • Awards and Recognition

For many years, Prairie State Legal Services has participated in the annual National Celebration of Pro Bono during the last week of October by honoring our volunteers throughout our communities.

In light of COVID-19, this year we will be taking our celebration virtual! From October 26-30, we will be hosting an online virtual celebration each day beginning at noon. During the reception, we will hear remarks from the Honorable Thomas L. Kilbride and LSC Board Chairman John Levi, and we will be presenting 2020 Pro Bono Excellence Awards to retired Judge Jim Brusatte from the 13th Judicial Circuit of Illinois and to State Farm. Finally, we will be honoring 11 local office volunteers for their contributions to their local communities.

Our pro bono volunteers are a vital part of reaching our mission of providing equal access to justice.

We encourage you to join us next week to see some of these remarkable volunteers
