    • 11 Mar 2016
    • 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
    • Your Pie, 110 W. Bryan St., Savannah, GA 31401

    Please Join Christie Baer and the Stonewall Bar Association for a monthly Gayborhood event in Savannah, GA.

    The Stonewall Bar Association’s monthly “gayborhood” dinners are an opportunity for Stonewall Bar members (and their guests) to get together for a casual dinner with whoever shows up that month. “Technically, these are ‘networking events,’” said family law attorney Christie Ayotte Baer, “but they are actually just an opportunity to hang out with other LGBT attorneys in a casual environment. You don’t have to RSVP and you pay for your own food, so you control your tab. It’s possible that only two or three people will show up for the first several months, and that’s fine. We’re following the build it and they will come [out] approach.”

    Savannah is the first location outside of metro Atlanta to begin offering these monthly gatherings, but the SBA hopes it will not be the last, as the organization works to expand its membership statewide.

    Savannah’s monthly gayborhood dinners will be held on the second Friday of every month from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Your Pie, 110 W. Bryan St., Savannah, GA 31401. For more information, contact Christie Ayotte Baer at christie@thebaerfirm.com or 912-662-5028. If you are thinking about hosting a monthly gayborhood meeting in your neighborhood (and you should), please contact Misty Peterson at mpeterson@kslaw.com.

    STONEWALL BAR ASSOCIATION DAY OF SERVICE

    Please join the Stonewall Bar Association and the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation for the Saturday Lawyer Program on March 19th from 9 a.m. to noon (breakfast and coffee will be provided).  

    For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Saturday Lawyer Program, it is AVLF's oldest and largest program, providing low-income Atlantans with access to volunteer attorneys for over 40 years.  On March 19th, you have the chance to team up with the Stonewall Bar Association to do meaningful pro bono work for the people of Atlanta.  Cases accepted in the Saturday Lawyer Program focus on promoting safe and habitable housing and ensuring the return of security deposits, resolving other landlord-tenant disputes, such as illegal evictions or damage to tenant's property caused by landlords, securing unpaid wages, defending clients against wrongful debt lawsuits and garnishments and  stopping harassment and unfair debt collection practices by debtors.  

    The Saturday Lawyer Program does not require any specific training.  Simply show up, enjoy breakfast with fellow Stonewall Bar Association members and interview potential AVLF clients and assess their claims.  There is no obligation to represent any of the potential clients that you interview (though you are welcome to do so).  Many of these individuals feel wronged and simply want a moment to be heard by someone willing to listen.  The Saturday Lawyer Program is one of those rare opportunities in the practice of law where you know you have made a difference simply because you were there.

    Information about the Saturday Lawyer Program can be found at:  http://avlf.org/volunteer-opportunities/saturday-lawyer-program-volunteer/

    For more information about how you can participate on March 19th, contact Jessica MacAllister at jmacallister@jonesday.com.  We look forward to seeing you there!
