Run For Justice 2014
It was a sunny and crisp day in the beautiful Oakhurst neighborhood, perfect for the thousand plus people who ran or walked for justice. THANKS to all who participated!
"The Run is always a lot of fun for us. There are many Legal Aid friends and supporters who come every year - it's like a family reunion," said Executive Director, Steve Gottlieb. "And I can't say enough how grateful we are for the money we were able to raise for our general operating fund. We promise to make good use of this generosity."
Thanks once again to Virginia Hawkins for our pictures!
The 90th Anniversary of
Atlanta Legal Aid Society began as the dream of a young lawyer named E. Smythe Gambrell, who had the idea that he could found an organization that would help returning World War I veterans victimized by salary buying/payday lending scams and desperate women with family issues.
Ninety years later, Atlanta Legal Aid continues to provide vigorous and innovative advocacy that changes laws and empowers clients in Fulton, Clayton, DeKalb, Gwinnett and Cobb counties.
The support of the legal community for Atlanta Legal Aid has been constant throughout its history. Lawyers built and sustained Legal Aid, and make it possible to serve nearly 25,000 clients each year.
