Legislative Briefings Spotlight Legal Aid’s Role in Communities
The Illinois Equal Justice Foundation (IEJF) recently hosted two legislative briefings with long-time grantees Prairie State Legal Services and CARPLS Legal Aid. Prairie State, CARPLS and IEJF leaders talked about the critical services legal aid organizations have provided constituents during the pandemic, and how state funding is vital to continuing that work.
