Hanna S. Cohn was, in the words of the late U.S. District Court Judge Michael Telesca, “a drum major for justice . . . who devoted her life to those in need.” For twenty years she was the Executive Director of Volunteer Legal Services Project in Rochester and a national leader in providing pro bono services to low-income individuals . Her exceptional efforts to develop innovative programming to reach out and represent impacted communities, including survivors of intimate partner violence and people living with AIDS, were recognized by the larger advocacy community.
She received the Root\Stimson Award for outstanding volunteer service to the community from the New York State Bar Association, the Executive Director of the Year award from the United Way of Greater Rochester, and the Equality and Justice Award from the Genesee Valley Chapter of the New York Civil Liberties Union. In addition, she received the President’s Award from both the Greater Rochester Association for Women Attorneys’ and the Monroe County Bar Association.
Hanna’s family is proud to partner with WJCNY to honor her memory and continue her work through the Hanna S. Cohn Family Preparedness Clinics.
