Amid Cuts to Minn. Courts, Free Legal Help Saturday
by Mark Albert
Amid "devastating" budget cuts to "overwhelmed" federal courts across the country, including in Minnesota, the Council on American-Islamic Relations is holding a free legal clinic Saturday to dispense much-needed advice to those who can least afford it.
"We hope that everyone that needs help will come," said Ellen Longfellow, a civil rights attorney at CAIR and the organizer of this year's second-annual clinic.
The event Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. will be held in the parking lot of the Masjid An Nur mosque at 1729 North Lyndale Ave in Minneapolis. The clinic is part of the larger, nationwide "Day of Dignity" events; the Minneapolis one will offer medical aid, clothing, haircuts, food, the legal clinic, and more.
