We want to make it easier and more equitable for people to access and navigate our civil justice system. No one should face a life-changing legal problem like eviction, domestic violence, or child custody on their own.
More than that, we believe access to legal aid is an issue of racial and economic justice. And in the face of growing and systemic inequality, we must redouble our commitment to justice for all.
That’s why we have developed a four-year Strategic Plan that positions us to better serve the evolving needs of Illinois’ legal aid organizations and the marginalized communities they serve.
