More about the Atlanta Legal Aid
The Run for Justice is a fun, easy way to show your support for Atlanta Legal Aid and the great work we do! We provide civil legal services to persons with very low incomes in Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Clayton and Cobb counties. Last year, Legal Aid attorneys assisted over 50,000 people and handled over 24,000 cases, primarily involving housing, family, and senior citizens issues. Begun in 1924 by 17 prominent local attorneys, Atlanta Legal Aid has meant access to justice for countless individuals, who would otherwise be shut out of an increasingly complex legal system because they do not have the money to hire a lawyer.
