Marnie Berk, director of Pro Bono Programs at NYLPI, was included in City & State’s The 2024 Nonprofit Trailblazers honorees, a “diverse group of visionary leaders who are carrying out this critical work at mission-driven nonprofit organizations across New York. The list, presented by City & State and its sister publication New York Nonprofit Media, features social services organization officials, executives of philanthropies and activists at grassroots organizations pushing for legislative change.”

Marnie Berk leads New York Lawyers for the Public Interest’s Pro Bono Clearinghouse, a national model that provides legal services and capacity building to New York’s nonprofits. The initiative helps provide legal services to over 1,000 nonprofits and community organizations each year. Before joining NYLPI, Berk was a corporate associate at Paul Weiss and Hogan Lovells. Prior to entering a career in law, Berk was a regional representative for then-Gov. Mario Cuomo and also did policy work on homelessness.

These leaders will be honored in person at celebration in Manhattan on Wednesday, May 22, with New York City Deputy Mayor for Strategic Initiatives Ana Almanzar and Department of Social Services Commissioner Molly Wasow Park as keynote speakers.
