Looking forward to more episodes!
When someone has a medical crisis they go to the emergency room, but where can they go for a legal emergency?
It is so inspiring to hear the stories of Director Chris Purnell and Attorney General Candidate Abby Kuzma fighting so fiercely to represent the underserved in everything from seeking asylum to securing social security disability.
Looking forward to hearing more of these important stories!
This emotionally powerful podcast has all the elements needed to revitalize one's faith in humanity. The narratives are inspiring and the speakers are engaging. The seemingly unintentional rhetoric for increasing and improving under privileged individuals' access to legal assistance was powerfully convincing, to say the least. Can't wait for podcast episode #2.
