Hosted by Children’s Law Center, D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, Mother’s Outreach Network, and Rising for Justice.
Please join us for a lively panel discussion on the need for pro bono representation in cases impacting families. This panel will discuss challenges individuals face in securing representation and dispel myths about who our clients are. Panelists will share their experiences representing parents, third-party caregivers, and the best interests of children. We’ll also be joined by D.C. Superior Court Judge Wellner who will share his view from the bench. Come learn why access to justice in family law means everyone has a lawyer. Attendees will receive information about how they can get involved, ranging from limited scope to extended representation. Registrants will receive a Zoom link in advance of the event.
Our discussion will be moderated by Jen Masi (Children’s Law Center) and participants will hear from the below panelists:
- Amanda Henderson (Rising for Justice)
- Jenadee Nanini (D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center)
- Melody Webb (Mother’s Outreach Network)
