Standing with our neighbors, Lakeshore Legal Aid fights poverty and injustice through advocacy and by providing meaningful and dignified access to the legal system.
Internal Equity Statement
Due to systemic oppression, people of color are more likely to live in poverty and to need legal assistance. For this reason, a sustained commitment to racial equity enables Lakeshore Legal Aid to:
serve clients with dignity and respect
support staff to thrive personally and professionally
work to remove systemic barriers to equity and justice
provide a model for other nonprofit organizations who seek to center racial equity, justice and inclusion.
Please join us for one of our projects or clinics, or contact us regarding taking a case for full representation.
