If you are reading this post then you have heard the good news: we’ve been selected as a *top ten finalist* in the 2015 Google Impact Challenge: Bay Area!
This is not only an incredible opportunity for Bayview Hunters Point Community Legal, but it is also momentous for legal aid and access to justice for our most vulnerable neighbors. Right now, there are millions and millions of families facing preventable economic devastation, displacement, and violence–simply because they cannot afford a trained advocate, such as an attorney, to help them enforce their civil rights.
We’ve imagined, tested, and executed a model that can change this for millions of families–and we started it all here in the Bay. And now that are our neighborhood-based universal access model–which guarantees legal representation in all areas of law– has been recognized as one of the most innovative ideas in the Bay Area, AND will be fluttering about in new conversations and compassionate minds is beyond thrilling.
We know we’re working on something really BIG, and that universal access to legal representation for entire neighborhoods can be a reality. We’re doing it in Bayview Hunters Point, and we’re ready to make it happen in even more communities. We look forward to everyone’s dedication in making our campaign a success so we can turn $500,000 dollars into an even better Bay Area!
