Urgent Call for Pro Bono Support and Briefing by KIND

Dear KIND Supporters and Friends,

Thank you all for the tremendous outpouring of support you have offered to KIND over the last few weeks as the child migration situation has escalated into a full blown crisis, beyond anything we could have imagined. We know many of you have helped KIND tremendously in the past and are eager to find other ways to support our efforts going forward.

We would like to invite all of you to join a conference call with Brad Smith, KIND Board Co-Chair and Microsoft Executive Vice President and General Counsel, and Wendy Young, KIND President, on Tuesday, July 29th from 1:00-1:30 p.m. EST. Brad and Wendy will provide an update on KIND’s response, and we will strategize collectively on increasing legal services to vulnerable children.

In anticipation of the call, we would like you to consider helping us in the following ways:

  1. Detailing attorneys to KIND sites for six months to a year to help KIND staff increase our services to children
  2. Committing to an increased number of pro bono hours over the next six months to a year, and consider taking a cluster of cases, by case type
  3. Developing an internal structure to support those taking KIND cases, so that in-house expertise can be developed. If you have completed your KIND case, please consider being a resource to another member of your team who is taking a case for the first time. If you have attended a training in the past and have not yet taken a case, now would be the time to do so.
