CONGRATULATIONS

 

Champion of Justice Award Recipient
STACEY E. KUSHLEFSKY

Pro Bono Counsel
Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP


During the ongoing global health crisis, the VLP’s services are more essential than ever. The COVID-19 pandemic has had the most devastating impact on the most vulnerable Brooklynites—who are black, Latinx, people of color, and mostly women and mothers. With a growing unemployment rate, increase debts, looming foreclosures, ongoing displacement, and a rise in critical life planning needs, the VLP’s direct legal services, and education and outreach programs are crucial to the dismantling of systemic barriers in accessing justice and equality. As the VLP’s premier fundraiser, funds raised for the Gala will enable the VLP to strengthen our pioneering pro bono model and delivery of essential-to-life legal services to thousands of Brooklynites.
