Each year, hundreds of attorneys participate in one of the largest lobby days at the Massachusetts State House. Their goal is to urge lawmakers to protect state funding for programs that provide civil legal aid to low-income Massachusetts residents.
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
State House - Great Hall
Participants hear from various speakers, including the presidents of the Massachusetts and Boston Bar Associations, about the critical role that civil legal aid plays in ensuring equal access to justice. They then visit their state Senator and Representative to encourage them to vote for adequate funding for civil legal aid in the Massachusetts state budget.
