Senators Praise Legal Services Advocates at 2015 Campaign Kick-off
Concord, NH -- March 2, 2015
U.S. Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio joined nearly 300 people at the Campaign Kick-off breakfast for the Campaign for Legal Services on March 2. The fifth annual event raises private funds for the civil legal aid services New Hampshire Legal Assistance and the Legal Advice and Referral Center.
Together, the two groups help more than 12,700 New Hampshire residents each year navigate the legal system in cases of domestic violence, wrongful evictions, or denial of health care or benefits.
Those numbers are more than just statistics, Sen. Portman said: They are real people in real need, and the benefits secured by the legal aid advocates help those families continue living in their homes and contributing to their communities.

“Everyone believes in equal justice but access to justice is not equal in New Hampshire. Basic human dignity demands that, regardless of income or circumstance, laws be equally applied to all. I support the Campaign for Legal Services so the homeless, the abused, the veterans and the elderly all have the same access to our justice system that I do.”
The Campaign is grateful for the hundreds of individuals like Jim who support civil legal assistance with a charitable contribution every year. Please help us reach our 2014 Campaign goal of $300,000 by making an online tax-deductible contribution today. Thank you for your support!
