Discussions surrounding vulnerabilities tend to focus on labor-market inclusion. But there’s another important, yet less talked-about issue facing immigrant communities, LGBT, and women: insufficient legal representation. In today’s world, legal services are hard to come by, especially in lower-income areas.
There’s a strong case to be made for increasing the legal protections for disadvantaged groups, such as mandating pro bono hours for attorneys or to create a plainly-worded statute system. Immigrants, whether tech or agricultural, as well as women and those in the LGBT community play a key role in rebuilding and sustaining communities and families. More legal and financial services are needed to bridge the divide.
