We provided this update on local events to our community partners and public officials.
If you are on-staff at a local organization or government agency, please email us with a request to join the mailing list. Include your name, title, organization and email in the note. You will then begin receiving Legal Aid's bi-weekly updates.
As February comes to a close, we write to share exciting news about March events. Our in-person Brief Advice Clinics are back! All events are free: Legal Aid never charges for services.
Over the course of the next month Legal Aid’s staff and volunteer attorneys will be out in the neighborhoods of Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, and Lorain counties to offer legal advice about civil legal issues related to shelter, safety, consumer rights, health, education, work, and income.
Our Brief Advice Clinic schedule for March 2022 is included below. Please share this information with your networks. You can also view the full events calendar on our website, or click here to download a bilingual flyer to distribute.
