Our core mission at LAF? We fight for the poor and vulnerable. Today let me unpack a couple of those seven words.
“We” does not just mean LAF staff, but also includes the volunteers of all kinds who work at our staff’s side. Those volunteers include folks of all kinds and from all generations. Lawyers, social workers, technicians, marketing and advertising professionals, community organizers, labor workers, and many more. Managing this amazing volume of support is a full-time, sophisticated job, done here by our Melissa Picciola. Read about Melissa here.
“Vulnerable” includes survivors of intimate partner violence, like our client Linda, who is finally free of her abusive husband, after months of needlessly complex legal work. And our colleagues Myka and Alyse, a volunteer from Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, made that happen. Read about it, and a lot more, in this month’s eNewsletter here.
And join us in the good fight.

LAF CEO and Executive Director
