PrideLaw Clinic Training. PrideLaw will be having its clinic training next Friday, February 16th. We run this clinic through Wingspan - Southern Arizona’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community center. People who come to our clinic seeking help have a variety of problems including:  landlord/tenant; contract; employment; bankruptcy/finances. Working at the clinic is an opportunity for interaction with real people who have real problems. You don’t have to know anything about the LGBT community, you just have to be open-minded and want some real-life experience. If you are interested in volunteering at the clinic and you haven’t yet attended a training session, please come to the training next Friday.

Here are the details:

If you have any questions, please email lprice@email.arizona.edu

Southwest Indian Art Fair at the Arizona State Museum. All are invited to volunteer for a COMMUNITY SERVICE BOARD project on Sunday, February 25. The Annual Southwest Indian Art Fair raises money for the Arizona State Museum and will feature performances and over 200 artists. Law school volunteers will work the “clean-up” shift, from 3:30 - 6:00 p.m., helping to take down tents and carrying art work to the artists’ cars. Volunteers get free admission to the fair for the entire weekend! If you would like to join us, please e-mail Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu.

Armory Park Senior Center Lunch and Dance. All are invited to volunteer for the FEBRUARY COMMUNITY SERVICE BOARD project on Wednesday, February 14. We are looking for up to 20 volunteers to kick up their heels with some local seniors this Valentine’s Day. The Armory Park Senior Center downtown is sponsoring a lunch and dance from 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. and need help setting up and serving the lunch. The dance will take place at the same time, and all volunteers are welcome to share their ballroom dance skills with appreciative seniors! We realize that many of you have class and other conflicts at this time and will not be able to participate. We apologize for the odd timing of this service event, but the Senior Center would really like some help, so we hope we can find at least some people who are free to help out. If you would like to join us, please e-mail Martha Fenn at fenn@law.arizona.edu.
