Washington, DC (October 6, 2021) – Epstein Becker Green (EBG) is proud to announce our support of the D.C. Access to Justice Commission’s 2020 Raising the Bar in D.C. Campaign. Over the past year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we saw an unprecedented need for civil legal aid and pro bono legal services to assist the most vulnerable residents of the DC community.
Together, EBG and the 36 other participating law firms raised $5.6 million in this year’s campaign, which will go toward providing low-income residents with legal services that address basic needs like housing, public benefits, domestic violence, and consumer fraud. EBG was honored to participate this year as a Silver Level Donor and give back at this critical time.
About the Raising the Bar in D.C. Campaign
To meet the urgent need for increased funding for legal services, the D.C. Access to Justice Commission formally launched the Raising the Bar in D.C. Campaign in December 2010, with the endorsement of the D.C. Bar Foundation and the D.C. Bar. The Campaign’s goal is to substantially increase financial support to the District’s legal services community by establishing benchmarks for law firm giving and annually recognizing and celebrating those firms that have donated at benchmark levels.
