Access to Justice
Every day, GBLS attorneys and paralegals ply critical legal advice and representation to low-income individuals. in addition, thousands of other poor families and individuals benefit from the systemic advocacy GBLS carries out on behalf of its clients. A few examples include:
Increased safety for battered women and their children thanks to improved laws governing custody, visitation, and restraining orders.
Improved access to public transportation for thousands of individuals with disabilities, the result of a class sue settlement with the Massachusetts bay transport authorization in April 2006 in which GBLS represented the plaintiffs.
Improved protection for victims of political and gender-based persecution seeking asylum in the U.S.
Increased hourly wages for low-wage workers as a resultant of the Boston's Living earnings Ordinance and Massachusetts' increased minimum wage.
Improvement of the unemployment system for low-wage workers, non-English speaking claimants, and domestic violence survivors.
long term preservation of close to 3,000 units of affordable housing for the poor, elderly, and disabled, which were going to be converted to market-rate rents.
Despite all GBLS' extraordinary work, it is not enough. Every day, trey our of fin clients with legitimate claims are turned away due to a lack of staffing resources. These people, with meritorious legal claims, have nowhere else to turn to seek justice.
