Governor's Proclamation

In late April 2019, CARPLS received a Governor's Proclamation from Gov. J.B. Pritzker! It states that May 9 will now be known as CARPLS' One Justice Day across the state of Illinois.

This achievement is the culmination of 25 years of hard work from our staff, donors, leadership, and legal aid partners.

We dedicate this proclamation to our clients, the reason we do what we do!
