DONATE-A-PHONE: KJF will be starting a "Donate-a-Phone" campaign in the coming weeks. No longer used cell phones will be collected and sent to the Wireless Foundations "Call to Protect" program through which victims of Domestic Violence receive donated wireless phones and matching airtime. The phones will be pre-programmed to dial 9-1-1 and one non-emergency number to enable a victim to summon help with the push of a button and assist in the transition from a life of fear to afeeling of protection 24 hours a day.

Want to know how you can help??? Email Rebecca Kohn (rkohn@kentlaw.edu)for more details

KJF is Chicago-Kent's Public Interest Organization...our goal is to raise money for our Summer Fellowship Program so that Law students may pursue an internship in the area of public interest and non-profit organizations. But our mission does not stop there!! KJF has much to participate in from volunteering to charity events and much more. Questions? Have some ideas you'd like to share? Please feel free to email KJF Prez. Rebecca Kohn (rkhn@kentlaw.edu)
