Every day the staff at three legal aid organizations supported by the Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund – Disability Rights Wisconsin (DRW), Legal Action of Wisconsin (LAW), and Judicare Legal Aid (JLA) – act to improve the lives of thousands of Wisconsin residents. These people have no place else to turn — they’re caught in the mire of our justice system that favors those who have legal representation. For them, justice is fleeting. These organizations are their last hope.
The people helped by our beneficiary legal aid organizations are the poor and disenfranchised in our communities. They’re the elderly, the single mothers, the abused spouses, the workers being discriminated against, the people with disabilities, or the veterans who sacrificed immeasurably for our country.
There’s Hope … With Your Help
Hope comes in the form of legal aid through attorneys, representation, helplines, online forums and educational sessions. Hope ripples through a workplace when a worker is treated fairly and an atmosphere of mutual respect is built. Hope is present when a mother is able to stay in her home with her children instead of being evicted. Hope is alive when a student with disabilities is allowed access to the tools he needs to succeed.
You can help sustain that hope. By giving to WEJF, you’re supporting programs that offer hope to hundreds of thousands of Wisconsin residents. You’re helping to create better opportunities for justice and stronger communities.
