Since its launch in the fall of 2019, the Ohio Justice Bus has been on the road, delivering justice to Ohio’s most vulnerable communities. To help manage the Bus’s busy clinic schedule and to expand its reach, the Bus is pleased to welcome two new full-time staff members.

“We’ve been growing rapidly, working with new community partners and increasing the number of legal clinics,” said Pro Bono Director Sophia Chang. “Adding two new staff members, particularly two attorneys, will help us serve more low-income Ohioans with civil legal challenges.”

Ohio Justice Bus Program Manager Delaney Barr joins the Bus from Equality Ohio, where she advocated for Ohio’s LGBTQ population across a host of legal areas. She is a graduate of Butler University and the George Washington University Law School.

Joining Barr on the road is Staff Attorney Scott Kovach. A recent graduate of Capital University Law School, Kovach is a staff sergeant in the U.S. Army Reserves and holds a master’s degree in legal studies from Washington University in St. Louis.

In 2021, the Bus hosted 34 legal clinics with 19 community partners, including Ohio’s legal aid organizations, county courts, and nonprofit organizations. Last year, the Bus doubled those results, hosting 68 clinics and traveling to 36 Ohio counties, helping more Ohioans access essential civil legal services to improve their health, safety, and financial security.

“2023 is going to be a banner year for the Ohio Justice Bus,” Chang said. “We look forward to more volunteer attorneys, clinics, and partnerships.”
