Legal Aid's Education Advocacy Project continues to deliver "know your rights" Education Toolkit sessions, an idea originally conceived for the Impact grant proposal. The Education Toolkit is delivered in English, Spanish, and Haitian Creole.
During the COVID pandemic, they have shifted their approach from in-person larger groups to small group or individualized sessions where the toolkit is dropped off in advance of a zoom meeting with families. A virtual toolkit session is planned with the Lord's Place for their families, reminiscent of their very first toolkit session conducted several years ago.
