Hudson Valley Legal Services` commitment to racial justice has always been a common thread running through our work. The pressure on our country and the world due to COVID-19 seems relentless. Add to that the pain of the last few weeks since the blatant murder of George Floyd and countless other black and brown people, and too many people in our communities are suffering and traumatic. As a legal service provider, we fight for equal justice for all. LSHV remains steadfast in its anti-racist commitment as we actively work for justice by providing services to those in need, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue to work in our communities and with our partners to reduce the injustices of systemic racism. We hope you will join us as we continue this fight. When a crisis occurs and people who cannot afford a lawyer face legal problems due to job loss, illness or unfair denial of benefits, they often don`t know where to turn or where to get legal advice. These people often get lost in the justice system, thwarted by unknown procedures and confusing processes and documents.
