Hurricane Katrina Honor Roll

While we want to acknowledge all who came to support The Pro Bono Project following Katrina, please note that this is not a complete list as some of the data from the firms and law schools who came during the height of the crisis has been lost. We are grateful to all who came and wish to acknowledge the total body of work done by all, whether included here or not.

As well, many of our local volunteers, Board members, law firms and businesses supported The Project during this time, as many had temporarily set up shop elsewhere in the United States.

During this time, the Board affirmed that it would serve for an additional year since consistency was critical to The Project’s successful recovery. You can listen to David Krebs and Rachel Piercey talk about these early days following Katrina in their Story Corps recording, done in March, 2015.
