2020: A Turning Point
Using a year of struggle to build a better future, where the law finally belongs to all of us.
What do you hope for in 2021?
What sort of world do you want to see?
2020 has shone a glaring spotlight on the injustice that has always existed in our society: Police brutality, environmental catastrophe, and the onset of Covid-19 have made this one of the hardest years in recent memory, especially for low-income folks and people of color.
But we believe we can make this year a turning point.
If we stand together and take action, we can keep kids safe, immigrants in the country, families housed, and workers protected. We can make real, measurable change in the lives of those who 2020 has harmed most, and ensure that 2021 is a new beginning.
Will you join us?
For women like Marquesa, 2020 was about family.
When her three-year-old daughter Bles’sed didn’t come home from school one day, Marquesa was terrified. she soon learned that her ex had taken Bles’sed and wouldn’t let her see her. Marquesa was devastated. Months went by. She thought she may never see her daughter again.
Then, Marquesa found Open Door Legal. We took on her case, and fought tooth and nail to get Bles’sed back. Thankfully, just before shelter in place began, we won Marquesa’s case. Bles’sed came home, and Marquesa finally felt whole again.
And she’s not alone. This year, Open Door Legal helped over 600 families like Marquesa’s. That wouldn’t be possible without supporters like you.
We can’t do it alone.
Together, let’s build a better 2021.
This turning point is only possible because of change makers like you
“Not only does Open Door Legal help ensure the fair and just application of civil law for all San Francisco residents, it is also creating an innovative model of legal aid to be replicated nationally. ODL’s impact goes far beyond the city limits.”
“We view our giving to ODL as one of the most tangible ways to help the poor and marginalized that we have ever encountered. Our giving to ODL has become one of the most joyful gifts we are honored to make each year.”
– William and Deb Norvell
“I work for ODL because I believe everyone should be able to exercise their rights, regardless of how much money they have, where they live, or the color of their skin.”
