Education, Poverty and Youth Law
Jay Diaz, a staff attorney at Vermont Legal Aid, recently appeared on CCTV Channel 17 with host Tom Garrett. Tom is executive director of Legal Services Law Line of Vermont and regularly hosts a program to explain legal issues that are important to Vermonters. In this video, Jay discusses how he has worked over the last two years to use the law to help break the generational cycle of poverty - the circumstances that lead children who grow up in poverty to be much more likely to live in poverty as adults.
Please be assured that we continue to work hard on behalf of vulnerable and low-income Vermonters.
