You know the statistic: each dollar donated to legal aid generates $21 in benefit to the community. You know that the ratio of legal aid attorneys to low-income Californians is a dismal 1:8,382, and that poor Americans face 260% more legal problems than middle-class Americans.
But this evening isn’t about those numbers.
It’s about the families that fought tooth and nail to save their homes and stay off the streets.
It’s about a mother, drowning in fines that she’d been wrongfully charged, doing everything she can to give her daughter a better childhood than she had.
It’s about loving seniors who go to the ends of the earth to ensure that their children and grandchildren will have a place to live after they’re gone.
This night is about a community of people from all walks of life coming together under the shared conviction that a legal system is only fair when everyone has access to it.
Please join us to celebrate the successful outcomes that our staff, clients, and donors have worked together to make a reality. Last year, tickets sold out in just two weeks. Get yours before they’re gone!
