More Services for Veterans!
Our Pro Bono Support Team based in the San Francisco office hopes that the early January 2013 Justice Bus Trip to far northern California will serve up to 400 veterans who are members of the Yurok Tribe. They also hope to bring legal help to 600 additional veterans living in isolated areas of the state throughout the year!

More Justice Bus Trips Serving Children and Youth!
Our Pro Bono Support team working out of the LA office is dreaming of bringing more legal help on special education issues to 50 children with disabilities in the Lancaster and Antelope Valley areas – and to spread that assistance into other isolated areas of Southern California.
Donations to the Children’s Legal Aid Fund will turn their dreams into reality!

New Skills for Seniors Programs!
One of our teams working to Strengthen the OneJustice Network has visions of bringing vital assistance in nonprofit management and operations to 10 nonprofit legal organizations serving seniors. This support will expand their leadership, management, governance and outreach capacity to enable them to serve many more low-income seniors during 2013.
You can share in that vision with a kind gift to the Seniors Legal Aid Fund today!
Fundraising Support Team (R to L): Natasha Ong, Development Associate; Julia Wilson, Executive Director; and Renae Getlin, Executive Assistant
New Fundraising Strategies for Legal Services Nonprofits!
Another Strengthen the Network team plans to support the leaders of nonprofit legal organizations in increasing their fundraising and communications skills throughout 2013. We know that better fundraising skills will allow their organizations to survive and thrive in this increasingly complex and competitive nonprofit sector.
Your kind gift will support the entire statewide network of over 100 nonprofit legal organizations – donate today! Thank you!
Justice: the perfect gift. Donate now to bring justice to over 270,000 Californians in 2013.
