Who We Are

We are a loosely knit group of academics, professionals, and students committed to defending our democracy in the months ahead. Spearheaded by Christia Mercer, Gustave M. Berne Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University, Project Pro Bono grew out of our overwhelming sense that professors, professionals, students, and friends want to use their energies and expertise to protect our democratic institutions and meet the most severe challenges of today’s America.
