Butler Rubin Sponsors CCH Justice Circle Reception

Pro Bono 1

CHICAGO, April 16, 2018 – Butler Rubin is a proud sponsor of the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless’ 7th Annual Justice Circle Reception at Revolution Brewing on April 17, 2018.

The CCH leads strategic campaigns, community outreach, and public policy initiatives that target the lack of affordable housing in metropolitan Chicago and Illinois.  Through the Justice Circle, the legal community offers financial support for legal aid services offered by the Law Project of the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless.  Attorneys, paralegals, judges, and law professors add their names to the list of legal professionals who believe that people experiencing homelessness are entitled to fair representation and equal protection under the law.

Founded in 1997, the Law Project is the only legal aid program in Illinois dedicated solely to legal assistance and advocacy to homeless or at-risk individuals, youth, and families.  Since 1997, the Law Project has been working tirelessly to protect the rights of homeless youth in schools.

Butler Rubin partner Andrew Shapiro was honored by the Law Project in 2017 during the Law Project’s 20th Anniversary Celebration.  Shapiro served as a member of the CCH Board of Directors from 2009 to 2016 and was a founding member of the Law Project’s Justice Circle.
