Our May newsletter features our call to action to protect state funding of legal aid. In addition, we sit down w Mark Swartz, exec director of @LCBH to discuss tenants' rights during COVID-19 and look at how IL-AFLAN is still protecting veterans.

Now more than ever tenants and families need access to legal aid. Thanks to state funding via @_IEJF UPLC is able to provide critical assistance. We urge legislators to protect funding for @_IEJF so all legal aid providers can support our communities during this time.

As more Illinoisans face challenges to livelihoods, health & safety, access to legal help is more critical than ever. IL General Assembly returns this week to pass a budget. Urge your State Senators & Reps to maintain—or increase—funding for @_IEJF!
