Racial Equity Pro Bono Legal Surge Team Launch
- ALL DAY
- By: Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee
- New Initiative Kick-Off
The Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee (GIPC) has launched a new pro bono initiative through its Race and the Legal Process Working Group to address a pressing need within the Indianapolis community. The COVID-19 pandemic and other pervasive barriers to economic opportunity have had a devastating impact on members of the Black and Brown communities in Indianapolis, as well as on other marginalized people. Looming evictions, unemployment, and economic and family stress are new and emergent threats to an already at-risk population.
