Mississippi Center for Justice Honors Stephen J. Pollak


The Mississippi Center for Justice is delighted that Stephen J. Pollak joined us as our 2012 Mississippi on the Potomac honoree. His distinguished career reflects a lifelong commitment to public service. He served as counsel to the President’s Task Force on the War on Poverty, where he played a major role in drafting the legislation that created Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), which today provides precious volunteer resources that help us advance our campaigns to fight poverty and discrimination. Pollak was also involved in many of the matters that became milestones of the Civil Rights Movement, including the march on Selma and the negotiations that led to the enactment of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.
