BayLegal invites you to join the fight!
This past year, we have faced significant threats to our clients’ livelihoods, our communities, and our core values:
Access to health care is under attack
Immigrant and refugee families are living in fear
More and more of our neighbors are being forced into homelessness
We won’t allow our clients’ rights to be trampled.
That’s why we are calling on you to join us–our staff, clients, neighbors, and future generations of Bay Area residents–to deliver on the promise of equality and justice for all. Join us to fight for a healthier, safer, and more stable Bay Area.
Join the Fight!
Meet our staff and community members who have joined the fight:
"We [people with disabilities] are the most unemployed population in the country. We are under-housed, meaning we live in non-accessible housing. We are the most transit-dependent constituency in the country, and yet we are too often ignored. People need to know that legal aid attorneys can help with many civil law problems impacting people with disabilities and other underserved communities."
"I’m motivated to do this work because I see a lot of young people out on the streets that are homeless. I feel everyone should have a safe and decent place to live. Our young folks need to know that there are support programs where they can get the help if they need it."
"I get up to do this work because justice is not some abstract concept. Justice is being able to stay in your home, getting the benefits you are promised, living free from harassment, and being able to escape your abuser. And justice requires hard work to achieve."
"After being diagnosed with breast cancer at 27, I experienced both the benefits of Affordable Care Act protections and the overwhelming stress of dealing with pushback from my insurance provider all while fighting to live. The support of my family, friends, and law school helped me tremendously, and I want to provide the same support for my clients in BayLegal’s Health Consumer Center."
"I have persisted throughout my life to live authentically within my present self. I want my clients to reach their potential and live their truth."
"I believe that children are some of the most vulnerable members of our society and deserve a home free of violence. Through advocacy, we can break the cycles of abuse!"
