ABOUT THE VLP GALA:

The Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) Virtual Gala celebrates and honors the work of extraordinary individuals who have demonstrated an unwavering commitment to serving the public good and equal justice. As the organization’s premier fundraising event, funds raised strengthen the vital work of the VLP, including direct legal services, innovative legal education and outreach programs in consumer debt, foreclosure, immigration, family law and elder law, as well as the training and supervision of volunteer attorneys from the private bar to assist thousands of Brooklyn families and individuals facing life-altering legal challenges. The Virtual Gala has additional significance this year as the VLP celebrates its 30th Anniversary.


During this ongoing global health crisis, the VLP's services are more essential than ever. As a result of COVID-19 and the immediate and increased need for rapid response initiatives and programs, we ask that you please consider making a donation in support of our critical work.
