Caitlin Cianflone ('09) and Kate Roberts ('11) joined the CLSR fellow Susan Walton as volunteers at the 10th annual Walk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid at the Massachusetts State House.
Walk to the Hill is sponsored by the Equal Justice Coalition, the Boston Bar Association, and the Massachusetts Bar Association. It began in 1999 as a way to emphasize the critical need for increased civil legal aid funding in Massachusetts. The lobby day has grown tremendously in its 10-year history. In 2008, 600 attorneys filled the State House to show their support for increasing access to justice.
