Thanks to the generosity of a long-time supporter, donations made to Equal Access to Justice before March 31, 2024, will be matched dollar for dollar! Former New Mexico chief public defender, John Bigelow, is providing a $5,000 Matching Challenge. Recently he shared what inspired this gift:
“I was fortunate to work as a law clerk and then later as a lawyer in the Office of Economic Opportunity legal services offices in Alaska and California. Those experiences, along with my role as New Mexico’s chief public defender, brought home to me the importance of legal services – both civil and criminal – for those without the means to provide their own. It is now fifty years since the Legal Services Corporation formally recognized at a federal level the need to help provide civil legal services across the country. To emphasize the continued tremendous value of civil legal services and advocate for increased funding, I am providing this $5,000 matching challenge. Give generously before March 31st and your gift to Equal Access to Justice will be matched dollar for dollar. Donate today, and together, we can make a consequential impact in our community.”
Because of you, the things we value most - our rights, homes, livelihoods, and families - are being protected. Thank you for being an important part of defending justice for all - not just for those who can afford it.
Your generosity puts us one step closer to raising $350,000 by March 31, 2024! Thank you!
