THE STORY:

As someone who is not an attorney, when I first was introduced to the notion of legal aid about five or so years ago, I have to admit I really didn’t understand what it was all about. I didn’t understand why a charity would employ and deploy attorneys within a community. I truly didn’t even understand the difference between civil and criminal law. And then things changed. I learned about civil injustice and the unmet needs of the poor, marginalized and victimized (so if you are a criminal you are guaranteed an attorney by law, but if you are a victim of domestic violence you don’t?). And I saw the power of pairing the most vulnerable in our community with an articulate and passionate voice – a legal aid attorney. Suddenly, people listened. The child subjected to lead paint poisoning, the veteran denied benefits, the elderly woman experiencing isolation and depravation of care inside a for-profit nursing home – why should only the wealthy have access to an attorney? I was hooked. Legal aid is like a social justice superhero. Join me in my fundraising campaign for the Justice for All Campaign.
