THE STORY:

LSC is the single largest funder of civil legal aid for low-income Americans in the nation. Established in 1974, LSC operates as an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation that promotes equal access to justice and provides grants for high-quality civil legal assistance to low-income Americans. LSC distributes more than 90 percent of its total funding to 133 independent nonprofit legal aid programs with more than 800 offices. 


/r/LegalAdvice is Reddit's home for free legal information for people with relatively simple problems. Many times, the best answer is "Get a lawyer", which for many people is easier said than done. We want to give back, and to do that, we've chosen support Legal Aid in our communities. 


"But the American ideal is not for some justice, it is, as the pledge of allegiance says, “Liberty and justice for all” or as the Supreme Court pediment has it “equal justice.” I’ve always thought that’s somewhat redundant. Can there be justice if it is not equal, can there be a just society when some do not have justice? Equality, equal treatment is perhaps the most fundamental element of justice. So, this organization pursues the most fundamental of American ideals and it pursues equal justice in those areas of life most important to the lives of our citizens." - Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, on the Legal Services Corporation 


Here at /r/legaladvice, we also support equal justice. That equal justice comes forth every day through practical advice, but for the next two weeks, we humbly ask that you also support it with money. For those of you who work for companies that do corporate matches, we'd love for you to not only donate, but file for a corporate matching donation. 


Thank you, from the /r/legaladvice moderation team, starred users, and the Legal Services Corporation.
