Recently, Colorado Lawyers Committee volunteers have participated in landmark legal cases concerning welfare reform, the availability of Medicaid to ill children and educational equity. Other Committee volunteers have explained Colorado’s ethnic intimidation laws, read to elementary school children, worked with state officials to ensure that people of Colorado are not disenfranchised in elections, supported economic development and expanded information available to immigrants.
The Colorado Lawyers Committee is a 31-year-old nonprofit, nonpartisan consortium of Denver-area law firms dedicated to providing and increasing opportunities for children, the poor and other disadvantaged communities through high impact pro bono work. The Lawyers Committee currently has more than 20 Task Forces working on projects in the areas of poverty and public benefits, civil rights, education, immigration, community development, mental health and criminal law.
