Week of January 27, 2003

Welcome Back!!!

Ah, yes, it is that time once again. This semester is KJF’s 12th Annual Spring Auction. Last year we raised $17,000 to go towards KJF”s Summer Fellowship Program, which provided fellowships for law students who would be working in public interest law for organizations that could not pay their interns. We want to do better than last year and we need your help to do it!!! There is plenty to be done so if you are
Interested in lending a hand please do so. KJF, along side the Public Interest Resource Center (PIRC), continues its collection of used cell phones to combat domestic violence. We have collected over 100 phones and still counting. Spread the word!!!

Good luck this semester to everyone
And to 3Ls: Three cheers to the first day of your last semester of law school!!!

Together with the Public Interest Resource Center, KJF is still collecting used cell phones to combat domestic violence.
You know that wireless phone you are no longer using?
The one that’s sitting in your drawer or closet right now?
It could literally save the life of one of the 5000+ victims who are beaten and abused every day.

A national program called “CALL TO PROTECT” collects used wireless phones to benefit victims of domestic violence. CALL TO PROTECT distributes new and recycled pre-programmed emergency wireless phones FREE OF CHARGE to domestic violence victims. The Kent Justice Foundation asks that you help this vital cause. To these women, the phone serves as an emergency lifeline – one they may not have access to otherwise.
Neither you nor the victim will be charged for any emergency calls made. All airtime is donated by local wireless carriers.
And don’t worry…all phones are erased and reprogrammed.

The program is sponsored by the Wireless Foundation, the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and Motorola.
If you have any cell phones you are no longer using please email KJF President Rebecca Kohn ( to arrange a time to donate your phone(s). All accessories that come with the phone are appreciated (batteries, chargers, etc).
Your donation is tax deductible and you will receive a receipt upon donation.
