Reflection from 2012-2013 Public Interest Leaders
The months of May and June mark the overlap of the incoming and outgoing PILP classes. We wanted to use this time to reflect on the good work done by the members of PILP class of 2012-2013 and hear what they enjoyed most about the program.
Here’s what they have to say:
Emily Hodge, Choate Hall & Stewart LLP
“Our class had the opportunity to devise and implement a project for participants in the federal reentry programs, CARE and RESTART. From the outset, we received support and encouragement from every professional involved in these programs – from the judges themselves, to the probation officers, AUSAs, public defenders and service providers. To witness this vast network of individuals come together in support of a common goal, in pursuit of success for the program participants, was inspirational, and to do it alongside such dedicated and talented peers was motivating and rewarding.”
Jacqueline Silva Anchondo, Boston Area Rape Crisis Center
“I most enjoyed getting to know the other members of the Program, both professionally and personally.”
Meghan D. Hely Walsh, Holland & Knight LLP
“The program introduced us to exceptional leaders of Boston and allowed us to meet with them in an intimate setting. We were able to learn from and connect with the Chair of The Boston Foundation, the Corporation Counsel of the City of Boston, the Chief Judge of the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts, the CEO of Greater Boston Legal Services, and many other generous pillars of our community.”
Stay tuned for feedback from other members of the class.
