The rate of homelessness in many American cities has hit all-time highs, and the rights of individuals experiencing homelessness are constantly being challenged. Individuals and families immigrating to the United States are facing huge legal barriers and many lack the advocacy they need to ensure safety and stability for their families. Low-income and vulnerable communities constantly face physical and mental health challenges and often lack the resources or advocacy needed to obtain the help they need.
Fortunately, there are attorneys in the public and private sectors working toward effecting change in order to improve the lives of individuals and
communities who are marginalized and vulnerable. Join us for a panel of attorneys from legal non-profits and large law firms as they discuss recent cases and projects they have worked on to change policy in the fields of housing, immigration, and mental health. Our panelists will discuss specific lawsuits, share tips and strategies for transforming policy, and how you can get involved through pro bono efforts.
