The Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), founded in 1929, is the oldest and largest law firm for the poor in California. LAFLA is committed to promoting access to justice, strengthening communities, fighting discrimination and effecting systemic change through representation, advocacy and community education. In 2009, LAFLA's poverty law experts provided high-quality legal assistance, free of charge, to more than 13,500 low-income individuals and families when critical legal emergencies threatened their homes, health and livelihoods, and assisted over 35,000 others with legal self help materials, education and referrals.
Since its inception in 1995, the Grand Cru has raised over $3,099,809 to support LAFLA’s services in the greater Long Beach/Harbor area and across metropolitan Los Angeles, helping low-income people to avoid homelessness, escape domestic violence, obtain subsistence benefits and health care access, defend themselves against employment and consumer abuses, and stabilize their living situations and become self-sufficient.
When & Where
Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles
Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles (LAFLA), the frontline law firm for the poor in Los Angeles County and the largest law firm for the poor in California, was established in 1929 to ensure that the indigent have access to the civil justice system. LAFLA seeks to provide access to justice for poor and low-income people in greater Los Angeles who face systemic barriers to equal justice, equal opportunity and, too often, basic human rights. We change lives through direct representation, systems change and community education.
LAFLA is the first place thousands of poor people turn to when they need legal assistance with a crisis that endangers their children, homes, safety and well-being. LAFLA’s holistic legal and case management services help the most vulnerable — including children growing up in poverty, victims of domestic violence, persons with disabilities, the indigent elderly, victims of torture and human trafficking, homeless and at-risk veterans and their families — secure fundamental services, health care, decent and affordable housing, employment and consumer protections, and freedom from exploitation and abuse.
