Beegle’s professional work and personal experience, combined with her
non-judgmental approach in this training allows attorneys working with
pro bono clients
thoughtful and meaningful insights into themselves and their clients.

their work more satisfying and their understanding of poverty one that
promotes real change rather than misunderstanding
and reinforcement of stereotypes. This curriculum and training has been
