I give to Legal Aid because—without legal aid attorneys—people who are living, working, and raising their children in poverty will have a low chance of achieving justice when they are faced with a problem that needs a legal solution. Legal aid attorneys are skilled in the legal issues facing people in poverty—they understand the barriers to moving out of poverty and provide the legal advice and representation needed to give meaning to legal rights we sometimes take for granted. Without legal aid in communities, community members living on low incomes often go without being able to gain meaningful access to justice. Justice is one of the pillars of our democracy and I hope that all attorneys feel that they are part of ensuring access to justice for all members of their community. Because our communities are stronger and our democracy is stronger when fairness and justice prevail. That's why I am so happy to be working at ABLE and why I give to Legal Aid.
