The Highland Park-Highwood Legal Aid Clinic 3rd Anniversary Celebration Fundraiser Spotlights Domestic Violence Awareness & Prevention
The event includes a reception, raffle, and speaker
The Highland Park- Highwood Legal Aid Clinic (the Clinic) will celebrate its 3rd anniversary on Thursday, May 10, 2018, with “Find Your Voice.” Business owners, civic leaders, and Clinic supporters will come together at Greenwood Restaurant at 200 Green Bay Road, Highwood for a reception and conversation Charlene Quint, renowned domestic violence speaker and survivor. Proceeds from the event and raffle will support the Clinic and access to justice for those in need. The event co-chairs are Tracy Fisher Zoldan and Aurelia Cohen.
“Since its inception, the Clinic has helped over 600
people in need stay in their homes, gain legal immigration status, or escape abusive relationships,” stated Executive Director Susan Shulman. “We could not do this important work in these, our core areas of focus without the generous support from the local and greater community.”
The Clinic honors Law Day by hosting the event in May. This is a time to expand awareness of how laws and the justice system affect our lives. This year’s theme is ‘Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom.’ The U.S. Constitution sets out a system of government with distinct and independent branches—Congress, the Presidency, and a Supreme Court. The Law Day 2018 theme enables us to reflect on the separation of powers as fundamental to our constitutional purpose and to consider how our governmental system is working for all.
