Thank you, Ejaz!

National Volunteer Appreciation Week
April 12 – 18, 2015
National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 by Points of Light. It presents a time to inspire, recognize and encourage people who engage in their communities. PJC volunteers are with us at the center of social change and this week, we share some stories of how together, we are ‘building a just society’.

Ejaz Baluch, Law Clerk, Spring 2015
Appellate Project and Human Right to Housing Project

Ejaz grew up in Edison, New Jersey and attended the University of Maryland, where he earned degrees in Government and Philosophy. Upon graduation, he taught middle school social studies for three years in Baltimore City Public Schools through Teach For America. After teaching in Baltimore, Ejaz was inspired to fight systemic racism and classism as a civil rights litigator. He is currently a second-year law student at the George Washington University Law School. As an intern with the Public Justice Center, Ejaz had the opportunity to learn first-hand what it means to litigate issues of civil rights and poverty law by working alongside talented colleagues dedicated to advancing social justice. As part of his work, Ejaz contributed valuable research and drafting assistance for the PJC’s amicus brief that highlights the need for transparency in police misconduct investigations.
