Lawyers for Change

Help relocate lawyers into communities where they are most needed to stand up for our rights.  Everyday, homeowners are foreclosed upon because someone took advantage of them, resident’s voices for civic change are muted by those with deeper pockets, and all but a few struggle to navigate a purposefully incomprehensible system of rules and regulations which fail to better our lives, as originally attended.
