“In the week after the Parkland school shooting, I was desperately searching for ways to help turn sorrow and outrage into action. I saw a request from the American Constitution Society. They needed lawyers, and I needed a cause. Within a few hours, I was part of a pro-bono team of researchers sifting through state laws to find ways to get high school students around the country registered to vote.”

“These are difficult times where underserved communities need lawyers. I volunteer because I want to use my skills as an attorney to positively influence people’s lives. It feels good to collaborate with like-minded people on good causes.”

“I always loved doing pro bono work in law school, but it was harder to find those opportunities once I graduated. The ease of finding those projects was what first attracted me to We The Action. Whatever issue you’re into, pick a project and run with it. Whatever your passion is, there’s going to be something for you”

“I was disturbed by how the nation was treating immigrants, and We The Action was an easy resource to find opportunities to volunteer from home. Any volunteer work is important, but it doesn’t have to take a lot of time. Sometimes all you need is an hour, but it has a major impact in someone’s life.”

“I came across We The Action during a transitional period in my legal career. I had just left a large law firm and was trying to figure out what I wanted to do next. We The Action allowed me to develop skills in different areas of law. It is a great organization that allows attorneys to give back to various causes while exploring different areas of law they are interested in.”
