In celebration of LAF's 50th Anniversary, you're invited to join us for a Luncheon fifty years in the making!  

Join LAF's past and present community on Friday, June 17th, at the Palmer House Hilton to celebrate a half century of incredible work and to honor everyone who helped LAF reach this milestone anniversary.  A table for ten costs $5,000, and individual tickets cost $150 (with an alumni discount price of $100 for former LAF staff). Tickets and tables are available here!  

LAF alumni are also invited to a special reunion cocktail party after the Luncheon to catch up with old friends and share new stories.  More information will be shared directly.  


2016 Brownbag Roundtable Series Kicks Off May 17th

Bring your lunch and join us at LAF on Tuesday, May 17th, for our first Lunchtime Brownbag Roundtable of 2016!  Our first roundtable will focus on the work of LAF's Housing Practice Group, and why preserving housing is critical to stabilizing the lives of people living in poverty.  Drawing on themes from 2015 MacArthur Foundation Fellow Matthew Desmond's recent bestselling book Evicted, attorneys in the Housing Practice Group will present a few case studies that tie Desmond's ideas to what is happening locally, and answer your questions.  The event is free, but space is limited, soplease RSVP here if you plan to attend.  
Pick up a copy of Desmond's book Evicted (and support LAF through Amazon Smile while you're at it!), and check out a recent talk Desmond gave at Loyola University.
