This year, we will honor our of counsel Michael Churchill, who joined the Law Center in 1976 and served as co-director until 2006, with the Thaddeus Stevens Award in recognition of more than 50 years of dedication to advancing civil rights in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania.

Michael Churchill

Since participating in Mississippi Freedom Summer in 1964, Mr. Churchill has helped lead efforts against housing segregation, police misconduct, employment discrimination, and more. He has litigated many cases fighting for quality public education for all children in Pennsylvania, and helped lead our litigation team in the school funding trial that concluded March 10.

We we also honor our pro-bono partner in our historic challenge to Pennsylvania’s school funding system, O’Melveny and Meyers, and our clients, six superintendents from school districts across Pennsylvania who stood up for the high quality education guaranteed in our state constitution.
