​We are proud to share that Brad Smith, General Counsel and Executive Vice President, Microsoft Corporate Legal & Corporate Affairs (LCA), has been named a White House Champion for Change.

Champion for Change is an initiative that honors Americans each week who are making an impact in their communities and helping the United States rise to meet the many challenges of the 21st century. Brad was recognized for his efforts to provide pro bono legal help for children who have been separated from their parents and face immigration issues.

You can read about the work Brad does through the Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) site. Brad is also a regular contributor to Microsoft on the Issues.
