Free Legal Clinic for Nonprofits

Meet with a team of volunteers who will review and revise your anti-harassment & non-discrimination policies.

In the era of the #MeToo movement, it is more important than ever that organizations have effective policies to address workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.  Every organization should have updated policies on these topics to ensure employees understand the standard of workplace conduct and the organization’s procedures for addressing violations.

This free legal clinic offers nonprofits the opportunity to receive a review of their anti-harassment and nondiscrimination policies, or to have new policies drafted by pro bono volunteers.  After participating in the clinic, nonprofits will leave the clinic with updated or new policies.

The clinic will be hosted by Corporate Pro Bono, the Greater Richmond Bar Foundation, Capital One & McGuireWoods, on Thursday, May 2, 2019 from 10:15 am to 1pm.  If selected, your organization will be matched with a team of attorney volunteers who will review and revise your anti-harassment & non-discrimination policies.  To register, you must complete and submit the online Intake Form found here or before April 11th at 5pm.

Should your organization be selected for participation in the clinic, your Executive Director, Board Chair, or other senior staff or Board Member responsible for governing or managing your organization must be able to participate in the clinic. If your organization does not qualify to participate, we may be able to offer you information about organizations in the Virginia area that may be able to give you the assistance you need.

If you have any questions about this opportunity, contact Alison Roussy, Director of Administration at aroussy@grbf.org.
