Call to Action Kicks Off October 12


Each year through our Call to Action initiative, local law firms and businesses generously fund legal aid for District residents in need. This year's campaign kicks off on October 12, and we need your support. To help build robust legal aid networks that meet the needs of our community's residents living with low incomes, we're asking DC firms, corporations, and faith communities to step forward in raising $535,000. To see a complete list of last year's donors and learn more about Call to Action before campaign kickoff, please visit our website.
