Free Webinar: Advancing Equity in Legal Services: Lessons Learned from the 2022 Cohort 

When: Tuesday, December 13, 2022, at 11:00-12:15 P.T./2:00-3:15 E.T.

This webinar continues the NCLER Advancing Equity for Older Adults series and will share lessons learned by legal services providers as they worked on implementing equity-focused projects within their organizations.  

NCLER and Justice in Aging developed a cohort of legal services programs, providing capacity building support and tools to advance equity for older adults with a focus on community partnerships. The programs accessed an Equity Tool that provides a framework for analyzing projects for equitable impact.

Participants will hear from programs that committed to improve their systems to better serve older adults who have faced structural discrimination by developing an equity project. Participating programs were:

  • Legal Services of Alabama, a statewide program, is improving outreach to historically discriminated communities with heir-property issues. 
  • Community Legal Services in Philadelphia, PA is working to assist Black and Hispanic families impacted by Medicaid estate recovery. 
  • Southern Minnesota Regional Legal Services, serving thirty-three counties in serving Minnesota, participated in a group to implement a legal risk detector to better reach Spanish speaking and Indigenous older adults through community partners. 
  • Bet Tzedek Legal Services in Los Angeles, CA is developing volunteer and pro bono outreach strategies to build client pipelines for communities of color in Los Angeles County.

In this training, presenters will:

  • Share their experiences and reflections about implementing an equity project;
  • Discuss an Equity Tool for legal and aging services to analyze projects for impact on equitable service delivery; and
  • Invite attendees to connect with NCLER and Justice in Aging about the Equity Tool or future iterations of the Advancing Equity in Legal Services program.


  • Michael Forton, Legal Services of Alabama
  • Pam Walz, Community Legal Services
  • Laura Orr, Minnesota Elder Justice Center
  • Bet Tzedek Legal Services
