Packing a Solar Punch

Attention Law School students: The Environmental Law Society (ELS) wants to celebrate fall with a garden party, featuring food and live music, with a little helping of solar punch!

The Environmental Law Society (ELS)  hosts a harvest garden party on September 19 in WP to celebrate the fall and gather all of the fruit and vegetables grown in the garden over the summer. Meet some new people, hang out with old friends, play some outdoor games, and enjoy a special performance by  Solar Punch.

What’s Solar Punch, you ask? They’re a solar-powered band that uses solar energy to perform music. They are focused on transmitting solutions and ideas about climate change and their live music setup is a living model of how solar electric works. Plus, people think they’re pretty electric. We mean… oh, just get out there and soak up the sun.

“Like a Bridge Over Troubled Water…”

The Pace Women’s Justice Center is changing the lives of the more than 2,800 victims and survivors of domestic violence who PWJC serves every year, as well as the law students who work with them.

The Pace Women’s Justice Center became the first academic legal center in the country devoted to training lawyers and others in domestic violence issues. Every year, Pace Law students who participate in invaluable semester-long externships and summer internships come out of the experience changed. As a former intern says, “Helping women in crisis take the first step towards a better, safer and happier life gave me a true sense of purpose to my legal studies.”

Interested in working more with women’s issues and social justice?

  • Hope’s Door, Inc., an organization in PLV which Pace has worked with in the past, provides a safe haven to survivors of domestic violence.
  • Hour Children, an organization committed to the compassionate and loving care of children of incarcerated women, provides support and empowerment for mothers upon reunification with their families.
