Join us on Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 6-9 PM for our 15th Anniversary Lawyers for Diversity event with keynote speaker Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul and Distinguished Jurist Award Recipient Justice Jesse Reyes of the Illinois Appellate Court.

Fifteen years ago, several lawyers got together to raise money for Chicago’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community at a mid-summer barbecue dubbed ‘Lawyers for Diversity.’ The idea was simple: connect the legal community, including law students, lawyers and judges, with organizations at the forefront of LGBT equality.

Since its inception, Lawyers for Diversity has supported the passage of nondiscrimination laws, civil unions and, most recently, same-sex marriage, by raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for many of Chicago’s community organizations leading these efforts.

The Lesbian and Gay Bar Association of Chicago Foundation ensures law students receive stipends for unpaid internships at the following community organizations:

• Cook County Public Defender’s Office
• Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office
• Heartland Alliance National Immigrant Justice Center
• Howard Brown Health
• Legal Council for Health Justice
• TransLife Care Program at Chicago House and Social Service Agency
