The LSNV Campaign for Equal Justice supports the work of Legal Services of Northern Virginia. The Campaign references the core belief that civil legal aid assures fairness for all in the justice system – not just for those who can afford it. The Campaign is designed to create a reliable and sustainable source of funding so that LSNV can provide legal services in Northern Virginia to those less fortunate.
For more than 35 years, LSNV has been a vital part of the local community and the broader community. Last year alone, LSNV handled more than 5,500 cases that directly benefited more than 13,500 low-income Northern Virginians.
The recession, coupled with cuts in federal, state, and local funding, has meant that as the need for LSNV’s services has grown, it has become much harder to secure necessary funding. LSNV’s revenue is approximately $600,000 less than it was just a few years ago.
The LSNV Campaign for Equal Justice helps to ensure that thousands of Northern Virginians have access to the justice they deserve for years to come. The need is great. For each person we help, we turn away one due to our limited resources. Each person and family that we could not help was just as deserving as those we serve.
