This new initiative encourages trial lawyers to volunteer in their communities in honor of Law Day, which is May 1. You don’t have to do your project on May 1 – any time in April or May will be fine.
You may already have a longstanding volunteer project set up in your community. If you have something planned for this spring, please tell AAJ about your project by using this form here.
The state with the most projects will get a shout-out on Facebook. And bragging rights.
How to get started
If you’re not sure how to get started, consider making a presentation to a high school or community group on the topic of ending distracted driving. AAJ member Joel Feldman has created a turn-key presentation—being used by hundreds of trial lawyers across North America—that is available at http://enddd.org/speaker-resources.
You might also find an inspiring project on AAJ’s Trial Lawyers Care website, www.TrialLawyersCare.org.
Ideas: Here’s what some AAJ members will be doing:
Packing food at a local food bank and serving food to homeless individuals and families.
- Raising money and participating in a walk to help people with brain injuries.
- Giving an End Distracted Driving presentation at a local high school.
- Coordinating an event that raises money for the American Cancer Society.
- Hosting an event to benefit the local Legal Aid.
- Organizing visits and events (reading to kids and hosting a performance for students) at local elementary schools and a children’s hospital.
Please consider taking time for one morning or afternoon of service to show your community that Trial Lawyers Care! More details are available at www.justice.org/NationalDayOfServiceForm.
Spread the word
AAJ will highlight many individual projects and the state with the most projects on Facebook, so spread the word with as many lawyers – and your contacts — as possible.
Thanks very much for your support and assistance.
