      Ladies & Gentlemen...

         My apologies for not putting up a new page last week.  Thank you for all of you who helped out at the bake sale!!  With the one year anniversary of September 11 right around the corner this may be a tougher week for all of us.  Many people who had never given charity in their lives gave after September 11, 2001.  Hopefully that spirit will continue but if it doesn't help give people that extra nudge and let them know there are many more people that society has left behind and that they too need charity.  Have a great week and always feel free to email me with any questions, comments, and yes, even complaints.

Until the Next Time...

Rebecca Kohn  KJF President

DONATE A PHONE & SAVE LIVES!!!

Join KJF and Public Interest Resource Center (PIRC) in the fight against Domestic Violence! Take part in "Call to Protect" a program to collect used cell phones for Victims of Domestic Violence!! All phones will be erased and reprogrammed with emergency numbers- a help line to the outside world. Even if you have a used cell phone you think is broken you can still donate the phone to the program. If you can, include chargers etc. that came with the phone. All donations are tax deductible. If you have a call phone to donate please email KJF President Rebecca Kohn at rkohn@kentlaw.edu to arrange a time to drop off your donation.

 

MORE FUN STUFF

Public Interest Resource Center (PIRC): Are you looking for an opportunity to get involved in community service? Are you interested in pursuing an internship in various kinds of Public Interest Law but you don't know where to start!! Let PIRC do the work for you. PIRC is in Room 654. You tell us what you are looking for, your interests and your goals and we'll find the opportunity that best fits your needs. Stop by Room 654, check out the PIRC Record Page, call 312.906.5089, or email student Advisor Rebecca Kohn (rkohn@kentlaw.edu) or Aaron Garland (agarland@kentlaw.edu) to set up an appointment. Being busy in law school doesn't have to mean that you miss out on the opportunities that interest you most!

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 (rkohn@kentlaw.edu)
