The combination of pledges from the ISBA Board of Governors at its March 27 meeting and contributions made by those attending the annual Equal Justice After Hours event the next evening resulted in a $23,820 infusion of funding for Iowa Legal Aid.

The governors’ pledges totaling $11,000 was the largest amount ever raised by the BOG. The $12,820 raised by those attending the Equal Justice After Hours event also set a record.

The money raised will be used to assist Iowa Legal Aid in its mission of providing legal assistance to low-income Iowans to help them achieve a stable income, safe and sustainable housing, freedom from domestic violence and access to health care.
