On Law Day - Support Equal Justice

Tomorrow - May 1 - is Law Day.  It is a time to momentarily reflect on the rule of law in our society.  In an "As I See It" column in today's Telegram and Gazette (link here), Joe Fournier and I advocate for support of civil legal aid - a program that provides legal assistance to low income individuals who cannot afford an attorney.  We do so through the eyes of one Worcester man who was helped enormously by the great support of the Legal Assistance Corporation of Central Massachusetts.  Please read his story.   And please do what you can to support legal aid and promote equal justice in our community.
