Anishinabe Legal Services helping underserved while pushing forward with new building
September 8, 2020
CASS LAKE, Minn. - Civil cases - divorce, wills and estate planning, property damage, custody proceedings, tenants rights - all are serious legal matters for which many people cannot afford representation or advice.
Anishinabe Legal Services (ALS) in north-central Minnesota aims to close this gap for low-income residents of Leech Lake, Red Lake and White Earth Nations with its goal to ensure equal access to high quality legal assistance for historically under-served people and to protect legal rights and tribal sovereignty.
The organization has been working toward justice in the area since 1967, and earlier this month, demolished its crumbling home for the last 45-plus years.
