The CBF is excited to welcome our new Manager of Advocacy & Programs, August Hieber, who started with the CBF this month. August is responsible for supporting the CBF’s court advocacy, legislative advocacy, and pro bono programs.
August comes to the CBF after completing an Equal Justice Works fellowship at CDEL where they designed Proud to Thrive, a new program that provides legal services to LGBT elders through mobile legal clinics and workshops at community sites across Chicago. Prior to their fellowship, August interned at Legal Aid Society of Metropolitan Family Services and the Office of the Illinois Attorney General.
Congratulations and welcome to August!
