Much of the pro bono work contributed by our lawyers and paralegals—more than 32,000 hours a year—focuses on efforts to enhance diversity.
Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights. Our lawyers assisted the National Commission on the Voting Rights Act at hearings and helped shape recommendations for Congressional reauthorization of the Voting Rights Act. We continue to work with the Lawyers Committee and groups across the country on election protection matters affecting diverse groups. We collaborated with the Lawyers Committee in representing a historic African American community in Mississippi whose residents opposed dredging plans that would have increased their flood risk.
Anderson Monarchs Soccer Club. We serve as counsel to an inner-city soccer club that fields the only African American girls' soccer team in the Delaware Valley, near Philadelphia.
Women's Sports Foundation. Our lawyers developed a bill of rights for female athletes.
Project Forward Leap. We serve as counsel to a nonprofit that provides academic enrichment, tutoring, and mentoring to inner-city, largely minority, students.
Utah Minority Bar Association. We helped to organize this group and obtain tax-exempt status for its law school scholarships project.
Ballard Spahr Immigration & Asylum Project. We help low-income individuals from Africa, Asia, and South America to obtain asylum and legal residency. We represented several national and international organizations in their efforts to combat human trafficking, and have filed amicus briefs in Pennsylvania and Arizona opposing anti-immigration statutes. We represent a Dominican-born juvenile in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, who faces deportation after being arrested, beaten, and tried as an adult without benefit of a translator or effective counsel.
