“I also challenge every law firm, no matter small or large, to join us and allow your staff to volunteer and get paid for that time,” Giordano said.
PHILADELPHIA (PRWEB) October 01, 2020
Pond Lehocky Giordano is promoting the vote by providing all staff and attorneys with a paid day off to volunteer as poll workers, election protection monitors, and volunteers across the nation. Now, they are calling on all other businesses to do the same and give employees paid time off to volunteer and vote.
“We needed to be better,” Founding Partner Thomas J. Giordano said. “It was through our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion committee that we agreed to ‘promote the vote.’ All the Pond Lehocky partners will be at the polls on election day with our staff. So, it's really important to us and I hope by doing things like this, that we are inspiring people to follow us.”
Pond Lehocky has teamed up with the Pennsylvania Alliance to amplify the importance of making our community’s voice heard and vote count through The Voter Project. The firm has also partnered with Litify to promote Power the Polls, which is organized by the Civic Alliance, a non-partisan group of businesses working together to build a future where everyone participates in shaping our country
“I also challenge every law firm, no matter small or large, to join us and allow your staff to volunteer and get paid for that time.” Giordano said. “I understand this is a tough time for every business because of what's going on with Covid, but I really think as leaders we need to step up and in the legal community, I think that is one way we can show how we are stepping up.”
The firm has launched a Promote the Vote landing page where community members can find resources about registering to vote, requesting a mail-in ballot, and volunteer opportunities. Pond Lehocky is working to ensure that every voice is heard this election season.
