Thank you, Melanie Kushnir.
Melanie passionately believed in justice. She was a warrior for justice who tirelessly shared her compassion and inspired clients, attorneys, law students, and co-workers. Her efforts to provide an attorney to abused seniors, victims of domestic violence, and to every child in foster care, resulted in hundreds of new pro bono attorneys providing free legal assistance and taking on a record number of cases.
Even in her passing, Melanie’s passion remains. We are humbled and overwhelmed by the outpouring of support we have received. Our thanks and appreciation go out to all those who donated to the Melanie Kushnir Access to Justice Fellowship within the Pro Bono Project at Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada. And to the many lawyers who have taken a case in Melanie’s honor, we and our entire community, thank you.
