Legal Aid Society 2018 Campaign Kickoff
The Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee and the Cumberlands launched its 2018 Campaign for Equal Justice with a kick-off luncheon on March 7 at the Nashville City Club.
Scott Hickman of Sherrard Roe Voigt & Harbison is the chair for this year’s campaign, which has a fundraising goal of $826,000.
William C. Koch Jr., dean of the Nashville School of Law, gave the keynote address at the kick-off luncheon, which was sponsored by Pinnacle Financial Partners. Koch emphasized Legal Aid Society’s importance to Tennesseans living at or near the poverty level.
The Campaign for Equal Justice has been held annually since 1987 to support the Legal Aid Society—Tennessee’s largest nonprofit law firm—in its mission of providing free legal assistance to low-income individuals throughout Middle Tennessee and the Cumberland Plateau.
