A city-wide jeans day event to benefit DC’s legal aid providers



As part of the annual National Pro Bono Celebration (October 19–25, 2014), the DC Pro Bono Week Celebration Planning Committee is coordinating the sixth annual Go Casual for Justice jeans day fundraiser to benefit DC’s legal aid providers. Employees at participating workplaces donate $5 (or more!) to wear jeans to work on any day the office designates.

What started six years ago with 30 law firms raising $30,000 has expanded to include more than 100 law firms, corporate law departments, banks, and other workplaces supporting legal aid for the poor. Last year, these companies pulled together to raise more than $80,000 (see a list of 2013 participants below). Join us in October to help us raise $85,000!

All funds raised support the DC Bar Foundation’s legal services grants, training, and lawyer loan repayment assistance programs benefiting DC’s legal aid providers. Find out more about how your support helps.

Participation is the key to making Go Casual for Justice successful, so feel free to customize your event to “suit” your workplace culture. Find out how to make your event a success and download materials, such as fliers and stickers, here. Check out what companies have done in the past by browsing through previous years' photos.
