MBLB MLK Day of Service group photoOf the 369,250 residents of New Orleans, almost 7,000 are homeless and twice that number meet HUD’s definition of homelessness. The lack of affordable housing, domestic violence and disabilities such as mental health/substance abuse contribute to the cycle of chronic homelessness in New Orleans.

Grace at The Green Light is a 501c3 that has been hard at work changing the culture of our great city since June 1st, 2014. Every day, its mission is to provide care for the people who need it the most. We’ve all seen someone down and out looking for a little hope at the green lights, and as we speed away to our lives, they’re still there. Grace at The Green Light hopes to provide essentials to not only help New Orleans homeless, but to show them there are people out there who do care about them.

Our MBLB team joined in that mission for our first annual Day of Service in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who said, “Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.” Working with other volunteers and staff at Grace at the Green Light, our team helped to serve 112 homeless people a hot breakfast, cleaned and painted the dining room and donated and sorted clothing.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day memorializes the work of Martin Luther King, Jr. (more commonly known as “MLK Jr.”), a Baptist minister and one of the most respected and renowned leaders of the American Civil Rights Movement. MLK Jr. became a prominent civil rights activist in the 1950s. He fought for racial equality and social change through nonviolent resistance, such as protests, marches, and boycotts. MLK was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964 for his work. After he was assassinated in 1968, his supporters continually commemorated him, but MLK Day did not become a federal holiday until 1983 and was not nationally observed until 1986.

Today, we still celebrate MLK Jr.’s efforts and achievements every year on the third Monday in January, and we remember his incredible fight for the black community and all of the positive effects he had on our country.

MLK DAY AS A DAY OF SERVICE

“Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve.”

These wise words by the great Martin Luther King, Jr. come from his speech entitled “Drum Major Instinct,” which was given on February 4, 1968 to his congregation. MLK Jr. emphasized that everyone, no matter their education level or socioeconomic status, has the ability to serve others as long as they have a “heart full of grace.” He envisioned that service would be a way to break barriers between races, allowing everyone to work together towards a common goal.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is the only federal holiday that has been designated by Congress as a National Day of Service. Whichever way that you serve, one of the pillars of MLK Day is to provide meaningful change to the community.

Kids Chance luncheonAttorneys with Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett were delighted to attend an event at Urban South Brewery to help raise funds for the Louisiana Bar Foundation Kids’ Chance Scholarship Program. Kids’ Chance awards scholarships to the children of Louisiana workers who have been killed or permanently and totally disabled in an accident compensable under a state or federal Workers’ Compensation Act or law. With combined contributions of $41,000, the Louisiana Bar Foundation awarded nine scholarships.

As a thank you to everyone who participated, the firm hosted a luncheon. We are proud to know that their contributions will go directly to helping a student further their education.

About Kids’ Chance

Each year one of every 50 Louisiana workers will be injured on the job. Some of these work accidents will result in death or permanent and total disability. Families of these individuals will face difficult challenges as they struggle to overcome the financial burden of these losses. Often a child’s dream of going to college is crushed because of unexpected income loss and/or the necessity to forfeit an education for work to financially support other family members. To these children, the future can appear frightening. Already confronting difficult emotions, they often have to confront the hurdle of funding their education beyond high school.

Since the Louisiana Bar Foundation began the Kids’ Chance program in Louisiana in 2004, over $825,000 in scholarships have been awarded to children of workers who were killed or permanently disabled in a workplace accident.

MBLB JDRF One Walk teamFor the eighth year, Mouledoux, Bland, Legrand & Brackett’s Marching 4 McFaull team participated in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) One Walk. JDRF supports the best researchers doing the most promising, cutting-edge science to cure, prevent and treat type 1 diabetes (T1D).

MBLB started participating in the JDRF One Walk as a tribute to our colleague, Jordan McFaull, who passed away from Type 1 Diabetes in 2015. Jordan, who was a graduate of Tulane University and Loyola University College of Law, joined MBLB after passing the bar in 2014. He was an industrious and resourceful attorney and a cheerful addition to our firm. He is missed by everyone with whom he worked.

MBLB at JDRF One Walk 2022After two years of the event being held virtually due to COVID and Hurricane Ida disruptions, this year’s New Orleans One Walk was held at Lafreniere Park in Metairie, Louisiana. It was a great success! United with other community members, local and corporate sponsors, and our families, friends, and furbabies, we helped to raise nearly $100,000 for TD1 research.

Thank you for your continued support to help us reach our team goal.

JDRF Advocates in Action Council

Next up for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation is to continue to work with Congress to push for lowering the price of much-needed insulin and other benefits for diabetics.

JDRF Advocates have had an incredible impact on moving the ball forward for the T1D community. Advocates have secured billions in Federal funding for T1D research, influenced policy decisions to benefit people with T1D, and much more. Members of the AAC will take a leadership role in continuing this important work.

Your voice can help make a big difference by becoming an Advocate today!

MBLB’S COMMITMENT TO JDRF

MBLB has formally adopted the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as the firm’s philanthropic charity. Our team participates in the JDRF One Walk every year as a way to help JDRF continue to fund life-changing T1D research. The goal is to help create a world without T1D. T1D is an autoimmune disease in which a person’s pancreas stops producing insulin—a hormone essential to turning food into energy. It strikes both children and adults and is unrelated to diet and lifestyle. With T1D there are no days off, and there is no cure—yet.

The Louisiana Bar Foundation has been holding pop up events throughout Louisiana for anyone interested in learning about how the organization operates, the growing need for civil legal aid for low income people, and how the LBF is trying to meet these needs. The pop ups provide a way for attendees to connect with local people and organizations that have firsthand experience with civil legal aid issues.

As the LBF President, Managing Member Alan Brackett recently spoke at one of the pop ups, which was covered by KLAX ABC 31 News. The segment, “Louisiana Bar Foundation Provides Legal Aid to Low Income People,” is appended below.

Louisiana Bar Foundation Provides Legal Aid to Low Income People

The Louisiana Bar Foundation is an organization of Louisiana attorneys seeking to provide legal aid to people in the state who can’t afford legal representation. ABC 31 News’ Joel Massey has more on the organization and the work it’s doing.

Alan Brackett, president of the non-profit Louisiana Bar Foundation said, “The Louisiana Bar Foundation is the largest funder of civil legal aid in the state. So, what we do, we fund organizations that provide direct legal services to people who otherwise can’t afford them.”

They held a pop up tour last night to promote the work that they are doing.

Brackett said, “So sometimes it’s called free legal civil aid, but it really isn’t free. It’s funded through a lot of different sources. But we make sure that the people who can deliver services like domestic violence shelters and people who represent children in foster care that they have the resources they need to help people.”

For every dollar spent on civil legal aid there is a 9-dollar 18 cent return on investment to the economy.

Brackett said, “What that means is we’re helping people stay in their homes so that they keep their jobs. We’re helping people who are survivors of domestic abuse to get out of those situations so that they get their lives back on track. There is a social benefit of helping people with basic legal problems that they otherwise can’t solve themselves.”

John Davidson is a 9th Judicial District Court Judge. He says many lawyers around the state are doing pro bono work.

“So many lawyers donate their time some donate their money. A lot of them donate service through other non-profit corporations and serve our community. The Bar Foundation works hard to make sure that you get proper legal representation regardless of your zip code or your economic status.”

In 2021 the top three legal issues facing civil legal aid clients in the Central Region were housing, family issues and income maintenance. Those are the issues that the Louisiana Bar Foundation is helping to address.

The organization is also helping people representing themselves to have the proper tools to be ready for their day in court.

Davidson said, “When you represent yourself a lot of times your emotions get caught up in the court conflict and it’s hard to be objective. It also allows us to support organizations who can help self-represented people learn more about their rights and their ability to access services and provide the proper forms and things to meet the legal needs that they have too.”
