Exposing Justice Gaps – Community Forum November 26, 2019
Please join us for a highly informative and interactive half-day dialogue on the growing justice gaps in our community and what we might do about narrowing them. This forum takes place November 26, 2019, at the Hastings Prince Edward Counties Health Unit, 179 North Park Street, Belleville and is being held from 9:30 am - 1:00 pm.
Come learn about how the cuts to legal aid are impacting on local people who need legal information, advice and help dealing with their problems in courts and tribunals. Share your ideas about how we can intervene earlier, ensure good legal health, legal literacy and legal empowerment. How can we reduce the stress of unresolved legal troubles when family relationships break down? How can we prevent unnecessary loss of income support, job loss, eviction and incarceration? How can we prevent consumers from being taken advantage of, support people who have been sexually harassed or people who are victims of crime?
