Racial Equity

Racial Equity

In December 2020, the Board of Directors of the Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York approved a racial justice priority to guide our work.

To ensure equitable treatment, services, and outcomes for people of color.

The Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York stands for a just America. Our mission embodies this commitment to a society which is inclusive and equitable for all. We will always use the law to “address individual and systemic wrongs and inequities” and to ensure fairness, dignity, and justice for those living in poverty.

We will continue to respond to what is happening in our communities and across our country.
