Legal Referral Training Materials

2-1-1 Banner

The mission of Call for Justice is to help low and moderate-income people connect with Twin Cities legal resources.  We do this in part by working with United Way 211 to identify legal resources for the thousands of callers who contact 211 in search of legal assistance.  Our work with 211 includes creating a training manual and arranging for legal experts to discuss legal issues facing Minnesotans.  The training identifies various legal resources.  Videos of several training sessions are available on our YouTube channel.
