Save the Date for the 10th Annual National Celebration of Pro Bono

October 21-27, 2018

Over the past nine years, with your help, the ABA’s Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service has succeeded in focusing an annual national spotlight on pro bono. During the 2017 National Celebration, over 700 organizations participating by planning more than 1300 events!

The Tenth Annual National Celebration of Pro Bono is only a few short months away. We are proud to join with ABA President Elect Bob Carlson to encourage you to plan and participate in events focused on disaster resiliency as part of the 2018 National Celebration of Pro Bono.

Disaster survivors face countless legal issues—from insurance disputes, FEMA appeals, landlord tenant disputes, consumer fraud, health and education issues, and so much more.

Moreover, even before a disaster strikes, communities need legal assistance with disaster preparedness through business continuity planning, securing title documents, meeting insurance needs, and other assistance.

September is National Disaster Preparedness month, which is the perfect lead up to the 2018 National Celebration of Pro Bono.  We are asking you to do your part to assist with disaster resiliency efforts by offering pro bono assistance to survivors or evacuees of disasters or by helping your community to prepare for a disaster.

Visit the National Celebration of Pro Bono website for planning resources and ideas, to purchase items for your event, or simply to learn more! Contact the ABA’s Center for Pro Bono to help facilitate your planning!

As always, activities involving all aspects of pro bono are welcome and encouraged. The hashtag for the Celebration is #celebrateprobono

Highlight the events happening in your community by adding your event to the national registry!

Do Good. Do Justice. Do Pro Bono.
