Public Counsel’s 2011-2012 Annual Report

Hi everyone,

Public Counsel’s 2011-2012 Annual Report is available now on our website at The report outlines Public Counsel’s efforts to tackle problems facing our communities through major litigation, policy change, legislation, and direct legal services. As Public Counsel’s CEO/President Hernán Vera so eloquently states in the introductory letter to the report,

“These difficult times require all of us not only to act, but to act swiftly and decisively. Whether it is a con artist defrauding a homeowner in trouble, a school district ignoring the civil rights of a child, a government agency failing to fulfill its duties to the homeless, or a duplicitous business strip-mining equity from our neighborhoods-Public Counsel is not afraid to step in aggressively to achieve justice.”

Together with all of you, Public Counsel will continue to be a force for good in people’s lives and affirm its commitment to equality and opportunity for all.

Thank you for your continued support!   Best,  Maggie
