Millions of Americans cannot afford the legal help they need when facing life-changing situations such as domestic violence, unlawful evictions, or the loss of veterans’, health or disability benefits. They are left to navigate these complex legal situations on their own – and risk losing their families, homes, and livelihoods in the process. Please join Philanthropy Northwest member, Montana Justice Foundation, for an interactive webinar to learn how civil legal aid offers a unique return on philanthropic investment. This program is relevant to members in all six Northwest states.
Pick a challenge that Montanans are grappling with, and you’ll probably find that it’s one where many issues intersect. Solving the problems we care about often requires making connections across issues and seeing beyond boundaries. Montanans have a deep sense of connectedness, to the land and to each other. We know that good things happen when people come together to work on tough issues, and it all starts with a conversation. At Local Matters: Montana, we will explore how philanthropy can build on this strength, enhance our networks and mobilize them for action.
