BGL hosts the Public Justice Center’s “Justice for Breakfast”: a discussion on the NCCRC’s 20 years of progress.

Brown, Goldstein & Levy hosted Justice for Breakfast, a discussion series by the Public Justice Center (PJC).  The session was centered on the theme, “20 Years of Progress: The National Coalition for a Civil Right to Counsel (NCCRC) and the Expansion of the Civil Right to Counsel.” BGL was delighted to host over 50 advocates for coffee, breakfast treats, and an energizing dialogue. Those who were unable to participate in person joined via Zoom.

Attendees heard from the NCCRC team about the right to civil counsel, debunking myths, critical interventions, and the ins and outs of tenant rights.

The Public Justice Center provides legal aid and advocacy tools in the pursuit of social justice for people who are struggling to provide for their basic needs. In 2003, the PJC joined with several other leading legal organizations to start the NCCRC, an association of individuals and organizations committed to ensuring meaningful and just access to the courts with partnerships in over 40 states.

Brown, Goldstein & Levy has proudly supported PJC for many years. The firm proudly participates in the PJC’s annual Law Firm Campaign each year and managing partner Sharon Krevor-Weisbaum and partner Greg Care currently sit on PJC’s Leadership Council. Attorneys Neel Lalchandani and Monica Basche are members of the Lawyers’ Alliance for the PJC.
