Legal Information for Families Today (LIFT) aims to enhance access to justice for children and families by providing legal information, community education, and compassionate guidance, while promoting system-wide reform of the courts and public agencies.
Based in New York, LIFT also provides multilingual Legal Resource Guides with step-by-step information on New York State family law and how the Courts work. You can see the guides here.
The 2014 Gala, A Benefit for Families, will take place on Tuesday, June 3rd 2014, at 10 Desbrosses St, New York City.
You can find out more about the Gala here.
LIFT also needs help from volunteers and interns, who include retired professionals, paralegals, law students and recent law school graduates, undergraduate college students, high school students, and lawyers.
Other volunteers help non-English speakers navigate the court system by translating LIFT’s Legal Resource Guides into languages other than English. At present the following languages are needed: Arabic, Chinese, French, Haitian-Creole, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Tagalog, Urdu, or Yiddish.
