Coverage: United States
This article, from the May-June 2002 issue of Clearinghouse Review: Journal of Poverty Law and Policy focusing on racial justice, discusses the mistaken belief that legal aid programs funded through the Legal Services Corporation (LSC) cannot effectively participate in race-based advocacy. The article examines what LSC-funded programs may do under their regulatory framework and highlights examples of race-based advocacy strategies that help communities of color within the confines of the LSC restrictions.
