Supporting nonprofits and vulnerable communities during a pandemic.

Lawyers are helping nonprofits respond to COVID-19.

Lawyers possess unique skills to help nonprofits and the people they serve navigate this time of unprecedented need, suffering, and uncertainty. Whether it’s helping nonprofits adapt and respond to COVID-19, seek federal relief, or continue protecting our democracy and vulnerable communities, lawyers have an essential role to play during this pandemic.

Lawyers are a key resource in this fight.

In a time of unprecedented need, We The Action lawyers have more than doubled their volunteerism with our nonprofit partners. Our lawyers are working closely with our partners to respond to many of this pandemic’s devastating threats--from promoting safe, free, and fair elections; to supporting efforts to supply medical professionals with personal protective equipment (PPE); to counseling dozens of organizations seeking federal relief; to protecting vulnerable populations, like detained immigrants and survivors of sexual assault; and more.
