Pro bono means safety, security, and love

Pro bono makes all the difference for families.
Safety from violence. Security after heart-breaking loss. Keeping loved ones together.
Today’s daily dose of the power of pro bono focuses on families. One mom helping another – and it just happens that one is a pro bono attorney and the other is escaping an abusive relationship. Children who need the stability of loved ones in the face of heart-wrenching loss. Family members who face legal barriers to staying together.
These stories could have happened to our neighbors, co-workers, and friends– and they might be similar to our own experiences. Nothing is more central to the human experience than family. And what made the difference in each of these stories of loss and crisis? Attorneys who were willing to donate their time, expertise, and energy to give back.
During this Celebrate Pro Bono Week and Campaign for Justice month, we raise a glass to all the amazing attorneys who step in to provide life-changing legal assistance to families in need. Thank you.
