PILI Alumni Spotlight: Kathy Clark, 1997 Intern

Posted on: October 1, 2013

At our 2011 Annual Awards Luncheon PILI presented a Distinguished Alumni Award to Kathleen K. Clark, Executive Director of Lawyers’ Committee for Better Housing, who served as a PILI Intern in the spring and fall of 1997 at the Roger Baldwin Foundation of the ACLU and at the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless. Kathy was a non-traditional law student, having decided to go to law school after 20 years working in family and community services. She graduated cum laude from the John Marshall Law School, and practiced fair housing and civil rights law, joining LCBH in 2000. LCBH believes that all persons have a right to safe, decent, and affordable housing on a non-discriminatory basis, and they work to promote the availability of and access to such housing in Chicago through legal representation, individual and public advocacy, supportive social services and education. The day of the 2011 PILI Annual Awards Luncheon marked Kathy’s 11 year anniversary as their executive director, and several members of LCBH’s staff and board of directors were in attendance to congratulate Kathy and celebrate with her.
