Hosted by Children’s Law Center, D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center, Mother’s Outreach Network
Please join us for a lively panel discussion on the need for pro bono representation in cases impacting families. This panel will discuss the challenges our clients face in securing representation and dispelling myths about who our clients are. Panelists will share their experiences representing parents, third-party caregivers, and the best interests of children. 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 led by:
- Jen Masi (Children’s Law Center)
- Jenadee Nanini (D.C. Bar Pro Bono Center)
- Keeshea Turner Roberts (Delaware Law School, Widener University)
- Melody Webb (Mother’s Outreach Network)
In advance of this session, attendees are invited to complete a brief (approximately ten minutes) virtual exercise on poverty. You can find the exercise here: SPENT: A Virtual Exercise on Poverty – H. E. Butt Foundation (hebfdn.org)
