    Go Casual for Justice

     . . . to benefit civil legal services to the indigent in Wisconsin

    As part of the annual National Pro Bono Celebration, the State Bar of Wisconsin Pro Bono Program is coordinating its second annual Go Casual for Justice fundraiser. This year, the event will benefit the Public Interest Legal Services Fund at the Wisconsin Trust Account Foundation. Together, we can help raise awareness of the importance of providing equal justice for all and help provide vital financial support for the organizations on the front lines or making equal justice a reality.

    When your office participates, attorneys and staff donate $5 (or more!) to wear casual attire to work during a day or days you designate during Pro Bono Week.

    Participation is the key to making Go Casual for Justice successful, so feel free to customize your event to suit your workplace culture.
