Community Spotlight: Louisiana Bar Foundation

Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett is delighted to bring awareness to the mission of the Louisiana Bar Foundation (LBF) and the organization’s new LBF Membership Level-Civil Legal Aid Fellow.

The LBF is the single largest grantor of funds in the State of Louisiana to support civil legal aid. The foundation supports the work of the two legal services corporations, as well as dozens of other organizations that advocate for children, victims of domestic violence, the elderly and disabled.

Managing Member Alan G. Brackett was recently installed as the President of the LBF at its annual gala in New Orleans and will serve for 2022-23. He previously served on the board from 2013—2016 and again beginning in 2017. Alan has been a Fellow of the LBF for more than twenty years. As Alan notes, “Access to justice is a critical need in Louisiana. We have a high poverty population and there are several barriers to the legal system that persist.”

About the New LBF Membership Level-Civil Legal Aid Fellow

The Louisiana Bar Foundation is inviting members of the community who are not attorneys to become advocates for free civil legal aid. “For the first time in LBF history, we are opening membership to community members who support our mission,” said LBF President Chris Ralston. “If you believe that all Louisianans, regardless of their background or income level, should have access to free civil legal services, then you should join us as a Civil Legal Aid Fellow.”

Access to civil legal services makes our community stronger by helping people avoid foreclosure, protect themselves from domestic violence, gain custody of loved ones, and safeguard economic security. Align yourself with an organization whose members are touching the lives of families that need help. Your membership is a statement of commitment to fairness and equal access for all in the justice system.
