Celebrate Jim Barrett and Pisgah Legal Services!

Pisgah Legal Services’ Executive Director, Jim Barrett, is retiring in August after more than 40 years serving the nonprofit, most of which as its leader. Please join us in celebrating his enormous contribution to the organization, and its ongoing impact, providing free civil legal aid and anti-poverty services to more than 23,500 people across our mountain region each year.

Jim’s Retirement Bash will take place on Thursday, July 18th at Highland Brewing Company, and an endowment has been established in his honor to further the work of Pisgah Legal Services. Please join us for the celebration, consider sponsoring the event and/or making a gift to The Jim Barrett Fund for Justice.
