The New New Thing: Strengthening Communications Capacity for Civil Legal Aid in Your State

Four years ago, Voices for Civil Justice was the new thing -- a national communications hub charged with tapping the awareness-raising power of the media to convey what civil legal aid is and why it matters. Now, with a nationwide JusticeVoices network of 1,200 advocates for legal aid and a track record of more than 300 media placements in high-traffic national outlets like The New York Times, NPR, and Fox News, Voices seeks partners to extend its reach and help build support for civil legal aid at the state level. At this session, you'll meet the state leaders who are launching state-based communications hubs and find out how Voices can assist you to create this essential capacity in your state.
