POP UP Wrap Up!

We officially wrapped up all nine of our POP UP Tour events across Louisiana! The POP UP Tour is an opportunity to learn more about the important work of the LBF and the impact of civil legal aid in each community. President Chris Ralston highlighted the increased need for civil legal aid services throughout our state during the pandemic and hurricane recovery. 

Each POP UP featured presentations from the region’s LBF Community Partnership Panel chair, a local judicial officer, and local grantee. The judges highlighted the value of civil legal aid to the entire community. The grantees let everyone know how they are using LBF funding and the impact it had in the region. They also shared impactful stories and identified civil legal aid needs associated with recovery of multiple disasters.

At the Greater Orleans event Hon. Jay Zainey asked attendees, “How many of you went to law school because you wanted to change the world?” He followed with, “No one on earth can change the world, but we can do our part to change people’s worlds.”

The Louisiana Bar Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)(3) entity organized under the state of Louisiana.
