Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid

Thursday, January 25, 2018 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Description:

You're Invited to Join Us as We Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid!

Each year, hundreds of private attorneys and civil legal aid advocates converge on the Massachusetts State House to demonstrate their support for state funding of civil legal aid. Walk to the Hill, one of the largest lobby days at the State House, brings legal aid and the private bar together for the cause of equal access to justice for all.

Interested BBA members should meet at 16 Beacon at 10:45 a.m. before we walk over to the Statehouse.

New to Walk to the Hill and worried you won’t know what to say? Join us at 9:30 a.m. for breakfast and a primer on Civil Legal Aid and tips for talking with your legislators and their staff. RSVP for the breakfast here!
