On October 7th, PILI hosted a Legal Help Within Reach Clinic in Rockford, Illinois. That morning, 11 volunteers from Kirkland & Ellis in Chicago took a bus to the Rockford Mass Transit District to meet with 14 clients to discuss special education needs. Special thanks to Equip for Equality and RAMP Center for Independent Living for partnering with us on this clinic!
Through Legal Help Within Reach, PILI recruits attorneys and law student volunteers from urban areas to volunteer at free legal clinics for low-income Illinoisans living in rural and underserved communities. These clinics provide much needed and otherwise inaccessible legal assistance to low-income people, families and communities in need.
PILI is grateful for the support of Equal Justice Works, Deere & Company, Lane & Waterman and Riley Safer Holmes & Cancila for providing significant funding to support this project.
