As part of the annual National Pro Bono Celebration (October 19–25, 2014), the DC Pro Bono Week Celebration Planning Committee is coordinating the 6th annual Go Casual for Justice jeans day fundraiser to benefit DC’s legal aid providers.
What started five 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.
All funds raised will support the DC Bar Foundation’s legal services grants, training, and 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.
