Last week, the Foundation’s Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council (YLN LC) hosted its annual Lip Sync for Justice event. Over 150 guests and 39 sponsors came together for an exciting evening of lip sync and karaoke, raising $35,000 in support of civil legal aid in the District. We could not be more grateful to our YLN LC members for their dedication to making the event a great success. We thank them for their service to not only to the Foundation, but to their neighbors in DC.
Joining the YLN LC presents a unique opportunity to get involved with the Foundation: It creates a space for members to connect their professional identity to their philanthropic spirit.
YLN LC Members serve as ambassadors who promote the Foundation’s mission of furthering access to justice in DC by engaging in regular meetings, grantee site visits, and networking dinners with members of our Board of Directors. They are key partners in raising funds to support the work of DC legal aid providers by planning events like Lip Sync for Justice. When you join the YLN LC, you gain the opportunity to make a direct impact on your neighbors in need in the District.
We are now accepting applications for two-year terms beginning October 2019 and expiring September 2021. Please submit application materials to Greer Richey, Development and Communications Assistant, at firstname.lastname@example.org by August 2 at 5 PM.
