As you may remember from last year, I'm a member of the Sanctuary for Families Pro Bono Council, a group of young professionals dedicated to supporting Sanctuary's mission of ending gender violence.
This Wednesday, October 19, we are hosting our annual Above & Beyond Pro Bono Achievement Awards & Benefit to honor pro bono attorneys who have gone "above and beyond" for Sanctuary's clients as well as to fundraise for Sanctuary's Legal Center, which provides critical legal services to victims of gender violence.
As a former legal intern of Sanctuary's Immigration Intervention Project, I saw firsthand how these legal services can really keep clients safe and change their lives and their children's lives for the better. I had a wonderful experience working on behalf of these clients and am fundraising for this event to help make continuing this good work possible.
I hope you will join me at the benefit and/or consider making a donation to help me meet my fundraising goal of $2,000. You can donate directly on this page or on the Sanctuary Above and Beyond website, where you can also purchase a ticket for the event as well as enter the raffle for 2 tickets and a back stage tour of Hamilton (the hit Broadway musical no one can get tickets to)!
Sanctuary for Families is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of victims of domestic violence, sex trafficking and related forms of gender violence. Through its range of clinical, legal, shelter, children's and economic services, Sanctuary for Families empowers and transforms the lives of thousands of adults and children each year to move from fear and abuse, to safety and stability.
