Join the Mass LGBTQ Bar Team. It is absolutely critical that we speak to legislators this year so that the drastic decline in IOLTA revenue not be compounded by any further cuts to the state's FY12 appropriation for legal aid. Here is fact sheet on the state’s appropriations for FY12. A free boxed lunch will be provided and a photograph of the Mass LGBTQ Bar team will be taken. We will also be competing for one of the Beacon of Justice participation awards – last year the top participant showed up with 50 attorneys!
The Mass LGBTQ Bar strongly encourages each of its lawyers, law students and allies to participate in this very important cause. Please RSVP your commitment to join the Mass LGBTQ Bar Team on Wednesday, February 2, 2011 by contacting Charles Chambers Jr at email@example.com, by Wednesday, January 26, 2011 if you are able to attend, and he will provide further information. If you belong to a firm that is participating in the Walk and plan to be at the State House that day, please also let Charles know so that we may count you in for the group photograph.
Thank you for supporting the Equal Justice Coalition’s effort to maintain level state funding for civil legal aid programs!
