Prairie State Legal Services will celebrate The National Celebration of Pro Bono (a.k.a. “Pro Bono Week”), October 23-29. Pro Bono Week was created by the American Bar Association in 2009 is an annual opportunity to celebrate the amazing and life changing pro bono work being done by volunteer lawyers and legal professionals.

Over the past two years, Prairie State held a virtual program-wide celebration event, hosting videos each day during Pro Bono Week highlighting some of our great volunteers. This year, local offices will be holding local celebrations during Pro Bono Week. We also plan to spotlight some of our great volunteers on our social media pages during Pro Bono Week and early November. Our pro bono volunteers are a vital part of reaching our mission of providing equal access to justice. Please join us in honoring them and follow our social media for these posts and be sure to share them with your networks.
