‘A Battle for the Souls of Black Girls’

If your child is not getting the help they need from their school and services providers, we can help. Call our education hotline: (888) 874-1488 or send an email to [email protected].

Discipline disparities between Black and white boys have driven reform efforts for years. But Black girls are arguably the most at-risk student group in the United States.

L.A.’s poorest patients endure long delays to see medical specialists. Some die waiting

“We are caring for patients who are the poorest of the poor, and we’re making them jump through these hoops they don’t need to jump through,” said a nurse practitioner of the County's long delays and difficulty in obtaining specialty appointments for patients.

Quality, affordable healthcare is a basic human right. If you need help please contact us: 800-896-3202

Thousands of patients in L.A. County's public hospital system face long, sometimes deadly waits to see specialists, a Times investigation has found. The system serves primarily the region's poorest and most vulnerable residents.

A civil justice crisis is coming - CommonWealth Magazine

Legal aid lawyers serve as essential workers on the front lines. Our sister organization in Massachusetts is sounding the alarm that a justice crisis is imminent, disproportionately threatening the health, safety, and financial stability of low-income people—particularly low-income people of color.

THE COVID-19 CRISIS has come at Massachusetts in waves: a public health emergency, an economic collapse, a widening of racial disparities, and now, an overwhelming need for legal help. In response, the Commonwealth must fully support the essential work of civil legal aid, which helps low-income peop...

I need help understanding this policy.
Well I came here to see if they could help me out but they could. She was a really nice person but how can they help people. When show the government is working I guess with the investors. This is why is so many homeless people out there. Well not me and I don’t used drugs. Hope someone they help me out.
Well I came to this place because my landlord did a eviction with a address where I didn’t leave. Well my landlord won’t and I didn’t know how if I show up to court explain that I didn’t leave there show them documents that the proof that I didn’t leave there. Well he couldn’t kick me out because the sheriff ask me for a bill. He did a second one in a different court. But I didn’t know why my landlord didn’t want talk to the judge my surprise because he open a 3 one. Well I didn’t know that people can file two eviction at the same time. Well he won’t the 3 one because I didn’t show up. How can I show up when I’m thinking it was the second one and my landlord dismissed.
Join us on Tuesday, March 19th for a FREE forum on the growing YIMBY movement. While NIMBY (an acronym for the phrase “Not in My Backyard”) has become a common position, rising housing costs have spurred a new grassroots YIMBY movement, whose members favor development, density, and accessibility. YIMBY activist Sonja Trauss, housing advocate and Abode Communities president Robin Hughes, and moderator Dana Cuff of UCLA cityLAB discuss the intersection of class and economic issues surrounding urban development. 7:30PM at the Hammer Museum! https://www.facebook.com/events/404577653612023/
Join us on Sunday, March 3rd for a FREE forum about gerrymandering in North Carolina. Gerrymandering has a long history in the United States, but within the last decade North Carolina has become the face of some of the most egregious practices in the country. Congressional and state legislative districts throughout the state have empowered one party while crippling the other. Representative Pricey Harrison of the North Carolina House of Representatives, Saumya Narechania, director of census and community engagement at National Democratic Redistricting Committee, and moderator Shaniqua McClendon, political director for Crooked Media, discuss the complicated and controversial practice. 2PM at the Hammer Museum. https://www.facebook.com/events/2229750340640235/
Join us on Thursday, January 31st for a FREE forum on Voting Rights and Wrongs. The 2018 midterm elections revealed egregious voter suppression tactics and mismanagement of polling places but also slate of new reforms that eliminate barriers to voting for many Americans. Kathay Feng, California Common Cause executive director; Franita Tolson, USC Gould School of Law professor; Justin Levitt, Loyola Law School professor; and Michael Morley, Florida State University law professor, discuss the future of voting rights and election laws with moderator Rick Hasen, UC Irvine political science and law professor. 7:30PM at the Hammer Museum!
Join us on Thursday, January 17th for a forum recapping the 2018 Midterms. For the first time in ten years, the Democrats are in control of the House of Representatives. November 2018’s midterm elections featured significant historical firsts, close and contested races, and “waves” of many different colors. Pod Save America cohost Jon Favreau and Kandist Mallett, politics editor at Blavity, break down the short- and long-term implications of November’s election. Moderated by Shaniqua McClendon, political director for Crooked Media. 7:30PM at the Hammer Museum! https://www.facebook.com/events/2182682021986315/
Hi - some of us are being evicted, no-cause, on Aug 1. EDN told us to go to the Shriver office once we get our unlawful detainers (fun). I don't see your address. Can you tell me, is it in that Mosk courthouse? PS - new owners are Taylor Equities, Serial Landlords, rated worst landlords in the city by Curbed LA.
I want to thank the Glendale office for all of their help in getting my expungements and a fresh new start for a my life! For the first time in a very long time I can become a contributing member for my family and community! I never thought this would ever be possible. You guys are a God send......God bless you and thank you!
