Ford Motor Company’s Legal Alliance for Women (LAW) hosted the Second Annual Global Day of Service on September 26, 2019, which focuses on servicing organizations who support the well-being of women and girls. The LAW Global Day of Service is part of Ford Global Caring Month, a signature worldwide event of the Ford Volunteer Corps in 34 countries during the month of September. As part of Ford’s Global Day of Service, Kuchler Polk attorneys, Amber Barlow and Kennard Davis, served dinner to approximately 85 residents of The Covenant House New Orleans. The Covenant House New Orleans is a shelter for homeless, trafficked, and at risk youth. The Covenant House provides food, shelter, medical care, clothing, counseling, assistance programs, vocational and job training, educational assistance, as well as many other life skills and training to help the youth rebuild their lives.
The Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights is a non-profit law office that provides juvenile defense for New Orleans area children, representation for Louisiana children facing or serving life without parole, advocates for policies that reduce the number of children in the justice system, and seeks better alternatives to arrest and incarceration. On March 28, 2019, Kuchler Polk Weiner, LLC sponsored Celebration for Children’s Rights, an annual event benefiting the Louisiana Center for Children’s Rights. This year’s program included a personal account of LCCR’s success of representing Louisiana children convicted of life without parole and highlighted other LCCR success stories. LCCR began a new tradition by presenting its first Pascal Calogero Champion of Justice Award, an annual award recognizing an individual or organization that is positively impacting the lives of children in the justice system.
KPW is honored to support and sponsor such an exceptional cause.
