Last Sunday was a perfect day for the AIDS Run & Walk...and the Legal Beagles were delighted to be part of it! Thank you SO much for supporting the Beagles and catapulting ALCC to the #3 team overall! If you didn't get a chance to support the Beagles but wish to do so, you still can. Because of you, ALCC will have the resources to help even more low-income people in need. Thank you! http://events.aidschicago.org/goto/legalbeagles

Hey friends of ALCC! Team AIDS Legal Beagles is making its final push at this year's AIDS Run Walk and we could use a little love to cross the finish line. Would you consider making a pledge to our team so we can continue to provide legal help to our clients with HIV? Every dollar makes a difference and helps our clients get health care, fight discrimination, access needed income and lead lives with greater hope, stability and peace of mind. Would you help us?

Lovable beagle Corby is one of our 2014 AIDS Run & Walk mascots! He's going to join us on September 14 for the big day. In the meantime, Corby asks (or politely woofs) that you support the ALCC Legal Beagles because every $ makes an impact. We have more clients than ever and our programs continue to grow, so your donation is super important. ALCC cannot do this work without YOU! So please make a donation today. From Corby and the entire Legal Beagles team, thank you so much! :-) http://events.aidschicago.org/goto/legalbeagles

Kudos to ALCC Board members Todd Solomon and Brian Tiemann for their good work keeping employers up-to-date on the changes they need to make to their personnel practices to make sure they're in compliance with the latest federal protections for same-sex marriage.
