This grant to FundaciĆ³n Poder Ciudadano supports their efforts in Argentina to establish partnerships with law firms, law schools, non-governmental organizations and government agencies to launch a pro bono clearinghouse, which will serve as a centralized database for referrals. They will provide legal assessment, referrals and pro bono legal assistance to low-income individuals, as well as pursue public interest cases in which public policy can be affected.
