We are hosting a happy hour fundraiser at Under the Radar Brewery on September 29th, 2017 from 5pm to 9pm to raise funds to support LSLA in their recovery after Hurricane Harvey. During the flooding, a gas leak set a fire in their headquarters’ offices and caused an explosion which rocked downtown Houston.

Lone Star Legal Aid (LSLA) is 501(c)(3) not-for-profit that meets the critical need of free legal assistance to low-income families and individuals in the South and East Texas regions. LSLA’s mission is to protect and advance the civil legal rights of the millions of Texans living in poverty by providing free legal advocacy, legal representation, and community education that ensures equal access to justice. LSLA assists the most vulnerable populations in our community: the poor, victims of disaster relief, victims of domestic and sexual assault, the elderly, and many others who need an attorney, but cannot afford one. One key service that LSLA provides is outreach to the Houston community and surrounding counties when disaster strikes the state.
