CGL supports the Raising The Bar campaign, providing essential legal services to the D.C. Area
Civil legal services are essential for District residents. That’s why we’re proud to support the D.C. Access to Justice Commission and be recognized by the Raising the Bar in DC campaign for our financial support to DC legal services organizations.
About the Raising the Bar in D.C.Campaign
To meet the urgent need for increased funding for legal services, the D.C. Access to Justice Commission formally launched the Raising the Bar in D.C. Campaign in December 2010, with the endorsement of the D.C. Bar Foundation and the D.C. Bar. The Campaign’s goal is to substantially increase financial support to the District’s legal services community by establishing benchmarks for law firm giving and annually recognizing and celebrating those firms that have donated at benchmark levels.
The campaign is critical to addressing the civil legal needs of D.C.’s most vulnerable communities, helping ensure low-income neighbors facing life-altering events such as eviction, the loss of public benefits, domestic abuse, and consumer fraud have access to free, expert legal assistance.
