Thank You for Your Advocacy
Thank you for letting your state legislators know just how vital civil legal aid funding is.
Your advocacy efforts paid off as $1.4 M in funding for the Illinois Equal Justice Foundation was included in the state budget. The IL Armed Forces Legal Aid Network was included in the budget at $1.4 M as well. A particular thanks to all of the grantees who joined the IEJF in Springfield for meetings with legislators and key staff.
