ADVOCATES FOR DISASTER JUSTICE - ADJ
|Advocates for Disaster Justice is the new era of DisasterLegalAid.org, a groundbreaking national collaboration and legal relief effort that took root in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Under the leadership of Pro Bono Net, Lone Star Legal Aid, the American Bar Association Center for Pro Bono, and the National Aid & Defender Association, Advocates for Disaster Justice has grown into the largest national network of justice advocates and allies working to advance equity, rights, and resilience in communities impacted by climate-driven and other disasters. Since the major disasters of 2017, Pro Bono Net, Lone Star Legal Aid, and our allies have trained more than 5,000 advocates, networked hundreds of organizations to harness the power of shared experience, and mobilized new resources to strengthen the legal response effort in times of crisis.
