ANNOUNCEMENT OF PUBLIC BENEFITS TRAINING SERIES
In partnership, Legal Aid Society of DC, Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless, and Whitman-Walker Clinic are pleased to announce our Public Benefits Trainings series again this Fall. We encourage case managers, legal services lawyers, pro bono lawyers, or anyone who works with low-income clients to attend these sessions. The trainings are free and an opportunity to learn about eligibility, benefits, application procedures, and practical tips on how to help your clients navigate the system.
We are requesting that anyone interested in attending RSVP to Jeremy Strauss at firstname.lastname@example.org since we have some space limitations and need counts on materials. We greatly appreciate the DC Bar Pro Bono Program for partnering with us and hosting this training series.
1st Training: Disability Benefits: SSI/SSDI/IDA on Tuesday, September 14 from noon – 2 pm.
Please help us get the word out. Please distribute this e-mail (and attached flyer) widely. We look forward to a strong turnout!
Thank you in advance for your help.
