I wanted to thank you and your team for your hard work and support this summer. It was an honor to be selected as an Equal Justice America fellow and to serve people with disabilities this summer at Equip for Equality. The Equal Justice America fellowship allowed me to take this unpaid opportunity at Equip and focus on my work, not on groceries or rent. While my heart was in the work that Equip does, the fellowship allowed me to keep my mind on it as well.
"Working for an organization like Legal Aid Chicago that serves primarily low-income clients would not be possible if it wasn’t for the funding from organizations like Equal Justice America. I am thankful for this organization because it gives the experience to not only further my legal career but also increase the accessibility of our court system for the most vulnerable."
