The DC Bar Foundation has had a busy Fall, full of virtual events. We hope you will join us for our virtual Fall Reception, taking place this Thursday, November 12 from 5 PM – 6 PM! Join us as we recognize the recipient of the 2020 Jerrold Scoutt Prize, Beth Mellen of The Legal Aid Society of the District of Columbia. We will also recognize the work of our grantees, Loan Repayment Assistance Program recipients, and the ongoing support of our loyal donors and volunteers. Please RSVP if you wish to attend. We look forward to spending the evening with you then!
In October, our Young Lawyers Network Leadership Council hosted “Avenues to Justice,” a virtual panel discussion and fundraiser focused on race, equity, and civil legal aid in DC. The event was a huge success, bringing in over $41,600 for DC’s legal aid network! We are so grateful for everyone who made the event possible: our thoughtful panelists, attendees, and individual and corporate sponsors. You can watch a recording of Avenues to Justice here.
