This year marks an important milestone for the Feerick Center. The Center celebrates its 15th anniversary.
We are very privileged since our launch to have had an extraordinarily dedicated team of staff, Dean’s Fellows, New York City Civic Corps and VISTA members, VISTA Leaders, consultants and volunteers support our work. We express our deep thanks to our Advisory Board Chair, Fern Schair, for her dedicated and brilliant support and leadership in so many areas; to our Advisory Board members for their committed and generous service; and to Professor Elizabeth B. Cooper, our Faculty Director, for her guidance and partnership through the Policy Advocacy and Legislation Clinic.
We are especially honored to have been able to work with significant numbers of law students and alumni during the past 15 years. Their involvement shaped our work and made the Center what it is today.
We thank the extensive network of partners -- in government, the courts, the nonprofit sector, and the legal services community -- who have been so central to our work. Our mission has been to engage in social justice efforts in partnership with others and are truly grateful for the opportunities to do so.
Finally, and most importantly, we thank our donors. Because of the tremendously generous commitment from our donor community to our mission and mandate, we have been able over the last 15 years take the Center from a concept and work to realize its promise. We hope you will join us in celebration at the 2021 Virtual Awards and Benefit Reception. Help us congratulate our deserving honorees and be a part of our robust benefit committee. Your support is critical to our continued success, and our deep thanks to everyone.
Our deep thanks to everyone and we look forward to celebrating with you this important milestone in our history.
With deep gratitude,
John D. Feerick
Founder and Senior Counsel
