DESCRIPTION:

Ensuring “liberty and justice for all” takes work, and under our legal system this requires lawyers “for all.” According to LACCM, most people who need legal help—especially low-income and elderly victims of civil injustices—do not receive it, in most cases because they either do not know how, or lack the resources, to obtain it. The government sector—“public initiatives for public good, focusing on law and order”—does not ensure it; so philanthropy—“private initiatives for public good, focusing on quality of life”—must help, and “Legal Assistance” has become a distinct taxonomic field of philanthropy. In Central Massachusetts, LACCM is the leader. Created in 1982 by the merger of two legal assistance charities active since the 1950s, LACCM’s more than 20 attorneys and paralegals last year directly assisted nearly 3,500 clients. Their four main programs are: Benefits and Employment, Families and Children, General Law, and the Elderly; but this large and substantial organization also litigated to secure full public library borrowing privileges for the homeless! LACCM advocates have received awards from the Massachusetts Bar Association and the Boston College Law School. They deserve broad public support, and we hope you will help.
