Clinic raises $40,000 at annual event

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

The Neighborhood Christian Legal Clinic in Indianapolis raised more than $40,000 at its annual “Justice for all” event.

Keynote speaker Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller discussed why public service is important to him at the April 29 benefit. Josh Abel, clinic executive director, talked about what the clinic does, and former client Kizito Kalima, a Rwandan refugee, talked about how the NCLC helped him obtain guardianship and eventual adoption of two Rwandan teens who were brought to the U.S. under false pretenses and were treated poorly.

In 2009, NCLC served more than 12,700 people. It is run by a staff of 25, including eight attorneys, and hundreds of volunteers, according to a May 10 release from the organization about the event.

“We are so grateful for all those who attended the event and joined us as a sponsor,” Abel said in a statement. “I am especially grateful to Barnes & Thornburg, Baker & Daniels, and Ice Miller. The funds raised from this event will help us provide critically needed legal services to our low-income and immigrant neighbors.”

Other sponsors included Ammeen & Associates, Telamon Corp., Bose McKinney & Evans, and the following attorneys and their spouses: Greg and Kathleen Guevara, Peter and Jessica Ho, Abby and Ben Kuzma, and Chris and Christianna Purnell.

  1. Hail to our Constitutional Law Expert in the Executive Office! “What you’re not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law,” Obama said.

  2. What is this, the Ind Supreme Court thinking that there is a separation of powers and limited enumerated powers as delegated by a dusty old document? Such eighteen century thinking, so rare and unwanted by the elites in this modern age. Dictate to us, dictate over us, the massess are chanting! George Soros agrees. Time to change with times Ind Supreme Court, says all President Snows. Rule by executive decree is the new black.

  3. I made the same argument before a commission of the Indiana Supreme Court and then to the fedeal district and federal appellate courts. Fell flat. So very glad to read that some judges still beleive that evidentiary foundations matter.

  4. KUDOS to the Indiana Supreme Court for realizing that some bureacracies need to go to the stake. Recall what RWR said: "No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. Government programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we'll ever see on this earth!" NOW ... what next to this rare and inspiring chopping block? Well, the Commission on Gender and Race (but not religion!?!) is way overdue. And some other Board's could be cut with a positive for State and the reputation of the Indiana judiciary.

  5. During a visit where an informant with police wears audio and video, does the video necessary have to show hand to hand transaction of money and narcotics?
