Champions for Justice brings together justice-loving workplaces and individuals from across the District in support of DC’s civil legal aid network. In 2020, Champions for Justice participants raised over $42,000 for DC's civil legal aid network! Information about the 2021 campaign will be available soon. In the meantime, read on to learn about our 2020 campaign, and how being a Champion for Justice works!
Formerly a denim-day, dress-down fundraiser in the form of "Go Casual for Justice," Champions for Justice creates a new way for us to come together and support DC's legal aid network as we work from home in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
When a workplace registers to participate in Champions for Justice, their employees can participate in the campaign's monthly challenges, or make a gift to the DC Bar Foundation (or both!), for a chance to win special prizes at the end of each month. Check out 2020's monthly competitions below!
October: Send a picture of you working in your favorite Halloween-inspired costume or outfit to firstname.lastname@example.org to be entered into our end-of-the-month giveaway. Donations to DCBF are encouraged!
November: Tell us what you're thankful for! All respondents to our "I'm thankful for..." prompt will be entered into our end-of-the-month giveaway. Donations to DCBF are encouraged!
December: All Champions for Justice donors and challenge participants from throughout the campaign are entered into our campaign closeout giveaway.
