A city-wide jeans day event to benefit DC’s legal aid providers

DC Pro Bono Week logoaltalt


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! See who's already signed up.

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.

Participation is the key to making Go Casual for Justice successful, so feel free to customize your event to “suit” your workplace culture. See who's already signed up.
