Happy Birthday to Me!
Happy birthday to me! I’m sure it violates several etiquette rules to ask for birthday presents, but it’s my party, and I’ll ask for your help supporting a great cause if I want to! Your help funding the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law fortifies the fight against racial injustice. So, the best gift to me this year is donating to the organization that protects legally eligible voters’ access to the polls and relentlessly engages in the campaign for criminal justice reform. Please support our efforts to create a freer, fairer and more just future for all of us. As many of you know, I give my money and time (150-200 hours a year in pro bono volunteer time) to the Lawyers’ Committee as current co-chair of the Board of Directors. Please take the time to look at the Lawyers’ Committee’s Annual Report to learn about the organization’s impressive and impactful body of work. I hope you’ll understand why all I want for my birthday is a gift to their noble cause.
