Support Justice on Colorado Gives Day

  

You can maximize your support for equal justice by making a Colorado Gives Day contribution to the Legal Aid Foundation. The value of online contributions made on Tuesday, December 10th will be increased by an Incentive Fund and the waiver of all credit card fees. Contributions may be scheduled in advance here. 

Disaster Legal Relief

  

Since the floods ravaged our state in September, the Legal Aid Foundation and Colorado Legal Services have been working together with the Colorado Bar Association and other entities to coordinate disaster legal services. The Colorado Joint Disaster Legal Services Task Force is working to ensure that those affected by the storms receive the legal assistance they need to begin to rebuild their lives. Low-income Coloradans have been hardest hit by the disaster, but thanks to Colorado Legal Services and donors like you, many will receive the help they need to get back on their feet.

Access to Justice Hearings

 

The Colorado Access to Justice Commission recently completed a series of hearings around the state concerning the need for civil legal services among low-income Coloradans and the inadequacy of the resources to meet that need. One bright spot of good news that was highlighted at the hearings was the excellent support Legal Aid receives from lawyers and law firms. Thanks to you, that support has continued to grow, despite the recession and its long aftermath. A full written report on the hearings is expected early next year.
