Walk for Justice!
The DC Bar Foundation will host its inaugural Walk for Justice on October 24, 2024. Patterned after the London Legal Walk that raises over a million dollars annually for civil legal aid, the 5K walk will begin and end at Nats Park, followed by food and drinks. Please mark your calendars and consider being one of our first corporate sponsors. With the launch of a Walk for Justice during Pro Bono Week next year, we will retire our Go Casual/Champions for Justice campaign, which ran from 2009 through 2023.
