DETAILS

Cuts to the LSC and its state partners are wrong. They threaten not only those most vulnerable, but they have the potential to deteriorate a legal system that struggles each day to do more with less. In the short term, these cuts mean fewer lawyers on the ground providing legal services to those in need. In the long term, these cuts threaten to shut off a critical set of services that benefit all Vermonters.
