Combined Campaign for Justice
Every year, the Delaware State Bar Association, CLASI, Delaware Volunteer Legal Services (DVLS) and the Legal Services Corporation of Delaware (LSCD) join together in the Combined Campaign for Justice to raise funds to support free legal assistance to vulnerable and underserved Delawareans. Donations are put to immediate use. Thank you for your support! Go to the Combined Campaign for Justice website to find out more about the Campaign and how to give by clicking here.
In 2018 CLASI adopted a strategic plan to guide its advocacy and development. The plan speaks to our values and commitment to making CLASI the best organization possible—from the perspective of our clients, employees, and the community at large.
