LGN Sponsors 43rd Annual Law Day Dinner to Benefit Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid

Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid

We were proud to sponsor and attend the 43rd Annual Law Day Dinner yesterday. The event is put on by The Fund for Legal Aid, with co-sponsor Hennepin County Bar Association, as a fundraiser for Mid-Minnesota Legal Aid (MMLA).

This year’s Law Day Dinner benefited MMLA’s work with older adults. Unfortunately, MMLA sees too many cases where, instead of being treated with the dignity they deserve, older adults are ignored, defrauded, and face manipulation and neglect, which impacts their safety and their daily lives. The MMLA Seniors unit helps older adults understand and enforce their rights.

More broadly, MMLA has been helping low-income neighbors in crisis, older adults, and people with disabilities in our community for over 100 years. Its free legal services are a critical lifeline for people impacted by job loss, discrimination, unsafe living conditions, and abuse or neglect. We were happy to be a part of the Law Day Dinner to help raise critical funds to continue this work and make it possible to help even more people in our community.
