    "Although I had not previously served on a board, when The Link asked if I would consider joining theirs, I did not hesitate."

    For many years, Craig's practice has involved real estate transactions with tax exempt organizations where he has been in close contact with the governing boards of churches, charter schools, and charitable organizations such as the Osprey Wilds Center, People Serving People, Project Pride In Living, and The Link. Of all these organizations, the work done by The Link is so critical because it offers a lifeline to some of the most vulnerable and exploited individuals in our society: victims of sex trafficking. In addition to the usual board functions of governance and fund raising, Craig helps The Link with their facilities structures.

    Katie Barrett Wiik dedicates substantial hours to her pro bono practice each year. She particularly enjoys impact litigation relating to gender equality and social justice issues and immigrant rights. As one of the top pro bono billers in 2020, she represented a single mother before the MN Supreme Court and helped create new law regarding a single mother’s right to change her child’s name, when the putative biological father has not established any legal relationship with the child. She also drafted amicus briefs to appellate courts on behalf of non-profit groups working to eradicate domestic and sexual violence.
