JOIN US FOR THE INAUGURAL
DC WALK FOR JUSTICE 5K!
The DC Bar Foundation invites you to support the inaugural DC Walk for Justice 5K on October 24, 2024!
Join fellow justice-loving individuals for an afternoon of community, education, and fun! Walkers will follow a route showcasing views of Nationals Park and the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail.
And it doesn't stop there! After the Walk, participants will celebrate with a finish line party with food, drinks, and music at Centerfield Plaza inside Nationals Park Stadium.
The DC Walk for Justice 5K aims to raise $250,000 for the District’s pressing civil legal needs. All proceeds from the DC Walk for Justice 5K benefit the DC Bar Foundation, which works to make civil legal aid more accessible for all District residents through grantmaking, network coordination, community engagement, and more. The DC Bar Foundation is committed to transforming the District’s civil legal aid network so that all residents have a fair and equal legal experience.
The Foundation has three goals for the Walk:
to increase community awareness of the significant civil legal aid needs in the District of Columbia,
to expand the network of lawyers, judges, and community members committed to supporting legal aid, and
to raise at least $250,000 for the Foundation's transformative work.
The Walk is patterned after the London Legal Walk, which raises more than $1 million annually for civil legal aid needs in London. Other communities in the UK, Australia, and the United States host annual legal walks.
