"Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity. It is an act of justice." –Nelson Mandela
The civil legal problems faced by the clients served by ABLE, LAWO, and the TBA Pro Bono Program are at their root, essential human needs. These organizations ensure that families have safe and healthy homes, are free from fear of domestic abuse, and have access to healthcare and the educational opportunities they need to be self-sufficient. We, as a collective community, cannot thrive when our members are at risk of homelessness, live in fear of domestic violence, or do not have access to the healthcare they need. When these issues are addressed effectively through civil legal aid, everyone benefits. I ask you to join me in supporting these companion organizations and helping them to do what they do best: ensure that all have access to equal justice.
