Louisiana residents endured 13 declared natural disasters and named storms during the years 2020-2021. Fifty-six out of sixty-four parishes have been in the recovery stage from natural disasters since March 2021 Louisiana has an urgent need for accessible legal aid. ELR seeks to bridge the Justice Gap through its three -pillared programs: legal accessibility; community clinics; and volunteer coordination and training. Each program under the ELR umbrella impacts, benefits, and supports the purpose of providing legal services. These symbiotic programs have established a one-stop-shop for legal and social support services that incorporate holistic disaster management and assistance. Immediately after a disaster, families and individuals face a set of critical legal issues that are time-sensitive and often life-threatening. With your help you will be providing direct assistance to those vulnerable populations needing it most.

Emergency Legal Responders (ELR) is a Louisiana-based organization founded in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Our team is rooted in our experience working on cases stemming from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Ida to Covid-19 to the BLM protests. We are attorneys, advocates, and community members who have worked for years to provide direct legal services to those impacted by emergency legal issues.
We provide direct legal aid through "boots on the ground" legal clinics, create tailored legal information slides, and train probono volunteers to help the communities they live in.
Legal emergencies are natural, social and economic. We are here to fill the "justice gap" that so many people in Louisiana live in.
