September 2019 is my 11-year anniversary as the Executive Director of the Edmonton Community Legal Centre, and although I am not a lawyer, so can't give legal advice, I have been working with two amazing staff people--Jennifer and Giselle--on all of the event planning helping to make sure Advice-A-thon runs smoothly. Advice-A-thon is a snapshot of what happens at our not-for-profit agency every day--lawyers volunteering to give legal advice to low income people--supported by 25 paid staff--including six staff lawyers. The clients can't afford to hire a lawyer--and many of them have additional concerns--mental health problems, language barriers, domestic violence--that make their legal problem that much more difficult. Clients tell us the free advice they get from us really helps!
