Nancia and Beth are two of our dedicated Helpline volunteers at CALA! They listen to Helpline calls and provide legal advice to those in need. CALA’s free helpline has given free legal consultations to hundreds of scared families and have fought to keep them in their homes. #CommunityLawyering
Meet Perla, Senior Staff Attorney at CALA! Perla has had years of experience in fighting social justice issues, including time spent opening her own law office. She believes that everyone should be treated with fairness and dignity despite their legal status, and will do whatever it takes to change the world for the better. #MeetCALAStaff #CommunityLawyering
Thomas was arrested at a rally while exercising free speech and his right to protest. It was a challenge, but CALA staff attorneys managed to reduce Thomas’ charge from a felony to a misdemeanor. Back on his feet and continuing activist work, Thomas thanks CALA for everything they had done for him.
Yesterday, CALA was graciously awarded the Holiday Award by the @macfound for all the work we have been doing empowering communities throughout Chicago! Thank you MacArthur Foundation for believing in the mission of CALA and helping us to provide community lawyering to the most underserved communities in Chicago.
Happy holidays and warm wishes for a happy new year from our CALA family to yours!
