On September 1, Legal Services of Southern Piedmont marked 50 years of pursuing justice for those in need in the Charlotte area. In addition to celebrating this milestone in September, Legal Services of Southern Piedmont updated its brand – including changing its name to Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy.
Since 1967, our organization has been fighting for families in crisis, pursuing justice and ensuring safety, security and stability for all people.
Under this new name, we will position our organization to meet the challenges of the next 50 years with an identity that directly reflects our work and dedication to serving this community. We intend to be more visible so that more people can know that we are a resource and seek our services
Our celebration acknowledges how far we’ve come with a reaffirmed commitment to getting our community where it needs to be — one where there truly is justice for ALL people, not just for those who can afford it.
