Help Legal Aid Ontario (LAO) Develop a Racialized Communities Strategy

October 18, 2017 Make Change

“Clients from racialized communities are often over-represented and face unequal treatment in the justice system,” says John McCamus, LAO’s Chair. “Because of this, LAO needs to develop a strategy to enhance legal services for these communities.”

You can help LAO develop this strategy. It will identify the legal needs and protect the legal rights of racialized communities in the justice system.

As part of developing that strategy, LAO is inviting Hamilton residents to participate in consultations.

A French language consultation takes place:

Tuesday November 7th 5 -7 p.m.at the Hamilton Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre Pavilion C 150 King Street East
