Match site launches for progressive lawyers and non-profits

I volunteer and work in the real world to change things. I was a member of the Victory Counsel Program with Marc Elias. I like this program http://www.politico.com/story/2017/07/28/match-site-launches-for-anti-trump-lawyers-and-non-profits-241065?utm_content=bufferbc5ed&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

President Donald Trump has inspired a new online dating service—between lawyers opposed to him seeking pro-bono work and opposition non-profits in need of help.

We the Action, launching Friday, will be an online portal to connect lawyers with legal work waiting to be done, from reviewing leases and contracts to filing Social Security claims to potentially heading to court in immigration cases. Non-profits will be able to post the services they need, and search through online profiles created by attorneys detailing expertise and availability.

Several connections have been made already by the 501c4, funded and incubated by the California-based Emerson Collective, the organization founded and led by Laurene Powell Jobs.

“After the election and as Trump was coming, there was this huge outpouring of lawyers who just wanted to know what they could do,” said Marc Elias, the D.C. Democratic elections lawyer who is serving as We the Action’s board chairman. “We ought to be able to match this great demand for legal services.”

Democratic operative Addisu Demisse and Emerson Collective immigration expert Marshall Fitz make up the rest of the board.

Independent of this group, I am helping three grassroots groups set up their organization and qualify as a GPAC under Texas law.
