Description

Legal Action Center (LAC) provides free legal services to people overcome discrimination, get fair treatment in the workplace, protect their HIV privacy rights, access the mental health and substance use disorder care they need, and attain jobs, homes, benefits, voting rights, and more. Their services range from brief advice to informal advocacy and full representation. Most services are offered via their telephone hotline, which is staffed by paralegals under attorney supervision. LAC also provides services offsite at community-based organizations. LAC does not accept walk-in clients. They work with clients to seal cases, correct background screening errors and gather evidence of positive change to increase their chances of obtaining employment, housing, and other life essentials. They also represent clients when they are illegally denied these opportunities. For clients with HIV or substance use disorders, they provide education and representation to address privacy violations and discrimination – whether in health care settings, employment, insurance coverage, the criminal justice and child welfare systems or elsewhere.
