Urge the Legislature to Provide $29 million for Civil Legal Aid
Civil legal aid is an essential service that helps low-income people protect their rights and resolve serious civil legal issues that threaten their health, housing, safety, and well-being. The COVID crisis creates an overwhelming need for legal assistance. As legislators consider the state budget, we need your help to emphasize the importance of civil legal aid.
Using this form, please ask your legislators now to urge legislative leadership to provide $29 million for civil legal aid through the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation—line item 0321-1600 in the Fiscal Year 2021 state budget. We’ve provided sample messages for you. Feel free to add your personal touch, then sign your name, and click submit.
