The 2nd Annual Fair Shake: a fundraiser to support equal access to environmental justice.

The Annual Fair Shake is both a celebration and evaluation of our work toward equal access to environmental justice. Each year, we invite our DEFENDER award winner to deliver a scholarly address on the state of access to environmental justice. This year, we'll also tour the Steel City's rivers on the Riverquest to learn its environmental history.

Please join us for this "State of Access to Justice" fundraiser for Fair Shake Environmental Legal Services. We'll hear a compelling address by Oday Salim, our first DEFENDER, learn about Pittsburgh's environmental history from the water (we promise a warm cabin), and enjoy great company, food and drinks.

Get your tickets today. Only $25.
