We believe that access to justice should not be determined by a persons lack of income. Your donation will ensure that some of the most vulnerable people will have a free lawyer to help them with life changing events.
#GivingTuesday is December 1, 2020 and because Legal Aid and Defender Association, Inc. knows how important fair and equal justice is to you, we your help in making a difference in the lives of so many underserved communities and families.
LAD provides a range of legal services to low-income families in Southeastern Michigan communities. As we know, Metro Detroit was a community hit hardest globally by COVID-19. Moreover, poor people in our community were hit the absolute hardest. Because of the lack of jobs and layoffs, an increased number of people are facing collections, repossessions, evictions, and sadly, many families are experiencing severe domestic violence sheltering in place with their abusers. As we continue to battle through this unprecedented time, there are so many families needing immediate and very serious legal assistance who clearly and simply do not have the means and sometimes good health to fight.
Under normal circumstances we welcome and rely on our selfless volunteers to help with the fight. However, this pandemic has also slowed down our efforts as most of our courageous and dedicated volunteers cannot risk engaging with staff and clients for fear of their health. We are maximizing all our technical and physical resources to support our community and families, but we need your help! While the numbers of COVID-19 cases are rising again the number of legal issues will follow.
Your generous donation will help us continue to provide free yet quality legal services to the most vulnerable individuals in this most critical time. Please help to continue to provide the much-needed services to people who would not otherwise have equal access to justice.
