Please help me raise funds for Cardozo's Public Interest Stipend to support students in important work at home and worldwide!

Greetings to all!

I am writing to request your support in building my contribution for Cardozo's Annual Public Service Auction. Each year, students solicit donations to raise money for our school's summer stipend program, which offers financial support to students undertaking unpaid legal internships in the public service and human rights sectors.

Last summer, through the support of the stipend program, I was able to do an internship with the European Roma Rights Centre (http://www.errc.org) in Budapest, Hungary. The ERRC is an international public interest law organization working to combat anti-Romani racism and human rights abuse of Roma through strategic litigation, research and policy development, advocacy and human rights education.

Other students focused on important domestic issues, such as immigration and prison reform; still others were able to intern with NGOs and grass-roots organizations worldwide. One student worked with an organization for women victims of the Rwandan genocide; another spent the summer in Gujarat, India, advocating for Dalit rights.

For more information about the Auction and Cardozo's Public Interest Stipend program, please see the attached Student Letter or visit the Center for Public Service Law's website (http://www.cardozo.yu.edu/publicservice).

I realize that donation requests are all too common this time of year, Cardozo's Public Interest Stipend allows students the chance to undertake immense and important work both domestically and in all corners of the globe.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, etc. Thank you, and I wish you all the best as we enter our respective holiday seasons.

Cheers,
Carse
