Help LACBA’s AIDS Legal Services Project during AIDS Walk on October 16
Funds raised by the ALSP walk team will go directly to the AIDS Legal Services Project, which provides $1 million worth of donated legal services each year. "Every dollar spent by the project generates more than 10 times that amount in pro bono legal services," said Laurie Aronoff, ALSP Director.
ALSP has been meeting the diverse legal needs of people living with HIV/AIDS for nearly 25 years. Through a support network of more than 300 volunteer advocates, ALSP provides individual representation on human rights and legal issues including immigration, discrimination litigation, healthcare privacy, benefits, testamentary, debt relief, and housing.
Since its inception in 1986, the project has provided tens of millions of dollars of free legal services to thousands of clients who, in many cases, had nowhere else to turn for help. In 2010 alone, the project provided more than $1.35 million in pro bono legal services.
