Rebecca Rapp: COVID-19 Crisis Brings Opportunity To Improve Legal Aid
COVID-19 disrupted the ability of legal aid providers to serve those who needed help before the pandemic. It also created a whole new set of legal needs — and people who need but cannot afford legal help — with its tremendous impact on people's families, jobs, health and school.
