Thank you, Diana. You are truly a civil legal aid force of nature. And thank you for your many years of outstanding leadership at LAF. It is a great pleasure to help you introduce these two important grants, here in my hometown. I know these special awards will allow you and your staff to improve and expand the indispensable services LAF has been providing to so many low-income Chicagoans so well for so long. I also want to thank Congressman Mike Quigley for being here and for his very strong support for LSC in the House.
The grant will allow the society to “build a technological bridge between urban pro bono volunteers and clients in Columbia and Greene counties and other counties,” said society Executive Director Lillian Moy. “We have great pro bono volunteers.”
