Pro Bono Week Our Pro Bono and Social Impact team got people engaged firmwide in Pro Bono Week last year with a Ruth Bader Ginsburg-inspired theme for the week: “Fight for the Things You Care About!” The team distributed a list of activities to help lawyers, staff, and their families honor the memory of the late justice, who spent her career working hard to make systematic change for women and for those who did not have a voice. These activities included reading books about Justice Ginsburg to children, volunteering for organizations that fight voter suppression, and even doing the famous RBG Workout. Free RBG face masks were distributed to lawyers who had dedicated 144 or more hours to pro bono work and to staff who had made use of 15 or more hours of Volunteer Time Off.
