Thank you to Lam Ho of CALA in Chicago for an inspiring Public Interest Luncheon!

We were pleased to host Lam Ho, Executive Director of the Community Activism Law Alliance (CALA), as our keynote speaker for the annual Public Interest Luncheon during the NALP Annual Education Conference.  Lam began his career as a Skadden Fellow with the Chicago Legal Assistance Foundation. Prior to founding CALA, he was a staff attorney at Equip for Equality, where he defended the civil rights of people with disabilities.  He is a graduate of Harvard Law School, where he was honored with many awards for his public service and dedication to his community.  In less than 10 years, Lam has made his dream of an organization that serves the marginalized where they live – in their communities – a reality.  If you want to know what community lawyering looks like CALA is a great example.  We were so inspired by the work he’s doing and the individuals he’s able to help. He’s truly uniting lawyers and community activists to bring free legal services back to  underserved populations in Chicago.  Learn more about CALA and Lam here.

We at NALP were privileged to make a modest donation in recognition of Lam’s contribution to our conference and support of CALA’s work.  If you’d like to do the same, below is the contact information, or you can visit the CALA website.
