On March 27-29, 2023, legal professionals from all over the country gathered in Washington D.C. for ABA Day, an event dedicated to advocating for diverse issues of importance to the legal profession. This year, participants introduced almost 90 new members of Congress to the American Bar Association and urged their congressional delegation to provide robust funding for the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) so that it can disseminate much needed federal funds to legal aid organizations in every state.
If you were unable to attend the event in person, you can still get involved and make sure your voice is heard.
One of the highlights of ABA Day was the web broadcast, which featured messages from members of Congress, ABA leadership, and others. If you missed the broadcast, don't worry! You can still watch it on the ABA's website and catch up on all the latest developments in the effort to support legal aid funding and hear from the champions leading the fight.
