DETAILS

No one can turn back the clock and undo the damage of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and other disasters. But to help people who’ve already suffered terribly, it’s important that federal disaster relief include funding for civil legal aid.

This is why Congress and President Trump must continue to fund the nonprofit Legal Services Corporation, to make sure all disaster survivors have a fighting chance to get back on their feet.
