OCBA Declares October 'Campaign for Justice' Month
The Orange County Bar Association Board of Directors has designated October as Campaign for Justice Month, as part of a statewide effort highlighting the need to raise funds and ensure that all Californians share the benefits of equal access to justice under law. The Campaign for Justice consists of four key components: educating key policymakers about the importance of legal assistance, encouraging banks to maximize interest and waive fees on Interest on Lawyers' Trust Accounts (IOLTA), increasing individual contributions to the Justice Gap Fund and legal assistance organizations, and encouraging pro bono services that leverage legal aid resources. By expanding awareness of the importance of legal assistance, the Campaign seeks to increase local and statewide legal aid resources, so Californians are not denied justice simply because they cannot afford a lawyer.
