Overview:

Advocates on our Neighborhood Law Project (NLP) will be onsite at Canton for All People, located in Crossroads United Methodist Church. Residents can meet with an attorney to identify and resolve legal barriers that may be blocking their efforts to lead productive, stable, and meaningful lives. Advocates will also share information and provide support around efforts to strengthen community investment, including, but not limited to:

  • Assistance with small business and nonprofit start-ups
  • Addressing court debt and/or barriers to employment
  • Forming tenant unions to improve living conditions
  • Other civil legal issues

The NLP Project works to promote economic development in historically disadvantaged neighborhoods by providing legal advocacy, expertise, and support to strengthen grassroots efforts in expanding social justice and racial equity. Project staff aims to empower disinvested communities and build coalitions for positive social change.
