Good Afternoon:

On behalf of the Legal Services Corporation Board of Directors, I cordially invite you to attend a virtual Veterans Day Celebration and Veterans Task Force Field Hearing on November 10 from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm ET.

During the Veterans Day Celebration portion of the program (11 am - 12 pm ET), LSC aims to raise awareness about the legal issues faced by veterans. We are honored that former U.S. Congressman and 32nd U.S. Under Secretary of the Army Patrick Murphy will speak and General Jim Mattis will provide recorded remarks. During the Field Hearing portion of the program that follows (12 pm – 4 pm ET), experts from veterans service organizations, law schools, state offices of veteran affairs, the VA, veterans treatment courts, and the law enforcement community will discuss Veterans Service Organizations, Serving Justice Involved Veterans, and Pro Bono Engagement Strategies. I have linked the program that contains more detail. 

The Legal Services Corporation Board of Directors launched the Veterans Task Force this spring.

The Task Force aims to: 

    Raise awareness of the civil legal issues faced by veterans;
    Identify ways to strengthen the relationships between legal aid providers and other veteran-serving organizations, including the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, treatment courts, and veterans advocacy organizations;
    Highlight model programs that provide effective, integrated services to veterans and make recommendations for replicating or expanding those programs; and
    Recommend strategies for engaging attorneys to provide legal assistance on a pro bono basis.

DLA Piper is LSC’s pro bono partner on the project.

We very much hope that you will join us to learn about some of the civil legal issues that our veterans face and how we can better serve them.
