Thank You To Our Amazing Donors!
This month we really wanted to say thanks to those who have donated to the LRC this month - especially those we haven’t been able to thank through other avenues. Our fight for justice has much forward work to do, and we thank you for joining with us!
That's all for this week! Follow us on Twitter (@LegalRightsCtr), Facebook, and Instagram (@mplslegalrightscenter) to stay up to date on the news we share and work we do.
