As we enter the Thanksgiving season, we at IAALS find ourselves grateful for so much, especially during a year that has brought so many challenges. Supporters like you—our broad and varied network of partners and friends—keep us moving as we continue to build momentum for reform across our civil justice system and across the legal profession. We continually reassess how IAALS’ work can best address these uncertain and unprecedented times, and our work has picked up speed as we’ve adapted to our new realities and launched new efforts to address them.

We are also thankful for seeing our democracy in action this past week and everyone exercising their right to vote. This year has illuminated both how far we have come and how far we have left to go. There are many challenges before us, but together we are rebuilding justice. Thank you for your ongoing commitment to our mission.
