Your support to end the exploitation and abuse of people in poverty is needed now more than ever. People in poverty are disproportionately harmed by the health and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ranks of the impoverished are swelling, leading to increasing numbers of persons seeking services. Your generosity is vital to support this increased demand for legal help.
More people now find themselves unexpectedly one crisis away from catastrophe. They may have lost their jobs or are working in unsafe conditions during this pandemic. Social isolation is exacerbating domestic violence and escalating exposure to consumer fraud. More families are facing eviction or foreclosure. A growing population is at increased risk of spiraling deeper into poverty.
Legal advice or representation can help avert disaster. Your support right now will help NJP provide an essential lifeline so impoverished and vulnerable persons can secure a better chance for justice, safety, and stability in their lives.
