Justice Alliance North is organising this FREE event because in the run up to the General Election we want to bring together everyone willing to help fight the cuts in funding for legal aid and advice.
To share updates and information on issues: domestic violence, welfare reform, poverty, mental health, disability, immigration, judicial reviews, criminal legal aid and what actions we will take to fight for advice in these areas.
Most of all to get together to plan for:
targeted lobbying of election candidates, MPs and councillors, to stop and reverse the cuts
organising campaign actions and publicity
getting more public support
For comprehensive publicly funded legal advice and representation services.
This event is FREE
