Inspired by the Public Good: Join Us at COS @ Google DC, 4.19.17

Citizens across the nation are coming together in unprecedented numbers to express their unwavering belief for accountability and justice. Attorneys and legal advocates in particular are proving that CHANGE IS POSSIBLE through direct action, pro bono service, or financial support of organizations leading the cause.

On April 19th, we will honor our own agents of change–the remarkable Jack Olender, Hon. Justice Carmen E. Espinosa (GWU ’76), Roach Brown, and Buckley Sandler. Please join us.

Consider What’s at Stake: The LSIC End-of-Year Appeal

One encounter with the criminal justice system can lead to a record that stays with you for life, interfering with your ability to work, find housing, and provide for basic needs. Thousands of men and women in Washington, DC carry this burden—even if they have done nothing wrong or have already paid their dues. Many are eligible to seal their record yet lack the knowledge and resources to do so on their own.

This holiday season, you can fight this injustice. Please Donate an Hour and Give a Second Chance.
