Opening Doors for New Americans since 1882
We are proud to announce that the Philadelphia Bar Foundation has announced that it will be honoring HIAS Pennsylvania's Executive Director Judi Bernstein-Baker at the 35th Annual Andrew Hamilton Benefit. As stated on their press release:
"The Philadelphia Bar Foundation Award (formerly the Louis D. Apothaker Award) will be presented this year to a terrific human being and exceptional public interest attorney, Judith Bernstein-Baker, Esq, Executive Director of HIAS Pennsylvania. Judi is a tireless advocate for immigrants and other vulnerable populations – and has been for more than 40 years. Her hands-on approach to helping the newest – and often the most vulnerable – members of our society overcome legal and economic barriers exemplifies the highest ideals of public interest lawyering."
Please join us and the Bar Foundation on Saturday November 16 at WHYY for this prestigious and well-deserved award to Judi.
