Dan Pearlman has served on PILP’s Board since its inception in 1986. Elected chair in 2011, Dan exhibits great passion for PILP’s work and lends his valuable knowledge and insight in furthering our mission. Following his service with the Peace Corps in Liberia, Dan spent a summer working with the Lawyers Constitutional Defense Committee where he developed his interest in public interest law. Dan worked to further low-income housing rights of low-income persons for many years at the National Housing Law Project.
Subsequently, he served on the Boards of the California Reinvestment Committee and California Housing Partnership. Noting that PILP has had “an incredible number of very important successes in helping to serve poor folks in California,” and that its “longer term future looks very good,” Dan hopes to see PILP continue to work toward the improvement of housing and poverty law throughout the state. PILP is proud to highlight Dan’s leadership on the Board.
