Please assist me in supporting Access Pro Bono and its mission to increase access to justice in BC while raising public awareness of the need for greater legal aid funding.
This September, I will participate in the 10th Annual Pro Bono Going Public—an outdoor free legal advice-a-thon. I will provide free legal advice to low- and modest-income individuals, including the homeless, in a public square. As you may expect during these times of limited access to justice, the demand for free legal services grows each day.
Access Pro Bono is committed to meeting this demand by operating over 100 legal advice clinics throughout BC in addition to several BC-wide representation programs. It is a testament to the charitable nature of BC's legal profession that our province boasts the largest network of pro bono legal services in Canada.
Unfortunately, institutional funding for pro bono programs is increasingly scarce. So Access Pro Bono has come to rely more and more on public awareness and fundraising campaigns like this one in order to balance its budget.
Please help me to reach my fundraising goal by donating to this worthy cause and by demonstrating your support of my commitment to access to justice and pro bono legal services in BC.

On February 5th, a group of us will be taking the Plunge to help fight homelessness here on the North Shore.
Massachusetts is the third most expensive state in the nation for housing. In our region, a family earning the area median income cannot afford to buy a median-priced home. Homelessness is on the rise across the U.S. and it affects hundreds of families right here in our own backyards.
Everyone deserves a place to call home and taking the plunge is one small but imporant way of helping. If you would like to help just enter your Pledge information in the box on the right.
Thank you for your support and I hope to see you on the beach!
