It's event week at PILI with our Virtual Arcade for Legal Aid happening this Wednesday! Get your tickets for only $20 here and check out our auction items here.

Additionally, this month, we launched our Rapid Response Eviction Task Force. This group will focus on addressing the impending eviction crisis once the eviction moratorium is lifted. If you are willing to help in this effort, please volunteer here.

In this newsletter, we're also excited to introduce our newest Managing Attorney, Abigail Causer, spotlight some amazing volunteers for National Volunteer Month and share highlights from the Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee Summit.

As always, please reach out with any questions or comments about PILI or our projects.


As part of National Volunteer Month, we want to express our gratitude to the many volunteers who help make equal access to justice a reality in Illinois! Over the last year, 80 attorneys participated in one of PILI's Pro Bono Opportunities and 266 attorneys answered questions on Illinois Free Legal Answers. Many others have volunteered by serving on one of our Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committees, presenting at CLEs or our educational seminars, or serving as advisors for PILI Interns and Fellows. Each of these individuals contribute to a legal community with a deeply rooted culture of service to best help people, families and communities in need. Read more.
On Thursday, April 15th PILI hosted a virtual summit of Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committee Chairs. PILI's Judicial Circuit Pro Bono Committees strive to increase equal access to justice by promoting and enhancing pro bono legal services within a specific judicial circuit and are led by local pro bono leaders in the community. Read more about their discussion.
