ABOUT US – COMMITTEES

 

Pro Bono/Community Service Committee

The Pro Bono/Community Service Committee gives PAP members the opportunity to participate in volunteer activities both within and outside of the legal field. Committee members may lend their services to the Homeless Advocacy Project, the Philadelphia Volunteers for the Indigent Program, Habitat for Humanity and various other charitable organizations. This Committee welcomes the Philadelphia legal community in general, and PAP members in particular, to join them in these activities. The Committee also works to provide information on Pro Bono and Community Service opportunities to members of PAP.

Public Interest Law Center (“PILCOP”)

We continue to have bi-monthly volunteer events with PILCOP and need more volunteers! PILCOP is dedicated to advancing the Constitutional promise of equal citizenship to all persons irrespective of race, ethnicity, national origin, disability, gender or poverty. They use public education, continuing education of our clients and client organizations, research, negotiation and, when necessary, the courts to achieve systemic reforms that advance the central goals of self-advocacy, social justice and equal protection of the law for all members of society. PILCOP needs help with a variety of tasks. If you are interested in in joining the Pro Bono/Community Service Committee, please indicate that on the Membership Application or contact Lisa Dean or Desiree Purvenas-Hayes, RP®, Committee Co-Chairs, for more information.
