"Stand up for what is right, even if you're standing alone" is one of the famous quotes which helps us understand the importance of supporting justice, standing up for the right cause no matter how difficult it is. RUN FOR JUSTICE is a fun and an easy way to show your support for Atlanta Legal Aid and their great work! They provide civil legal services to persons with very low incomes in Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Clayton and Cobb counties. Last year, Legal Aid attorneys assisted over 50,000 people and handled over 24,000 cases, primarily involving housing, family, and senior citizens issues.
Begun in 1924 by 17 prominent local attorneys, Atlanta Legal Aid has meant access to justice for countless individuals, who would otherwise be shut out of an increasingly complex legal system because they do not have the money to hire a lawyer.
Check out what they are doing today at www.atlantalegalaid.org The 27th Run for Justice will start in Oakhurst on November 11th, 2017 at 9:00 am. Your support is needed. Awards will be presented to the top 5-k finishers and teams in a variety of categories, including pets, children and strollers. Families, corporate, church, school and community teams are welcome. LawSpaceMatch is one of the sponsors for this race.
We support the Atlanta Legal Aid Society, and we hope you will too. See you at the race!
