Legal Services Corporation chair comments on poverty data

John G. Levi, chairman to the Legal Services Corporation (LSC), posted a statement on the LSC website today regarding the 2009 statistics on poverty released by the Census Bureau. According to the report, more Americans qualify for LSC assistance due to lower incomes than in previous years.

Levi points out that LSC-funded agencies already don't have enough resources to offer assistance to everyone who seeks legal help. He encourages "the national legal community to increase its volunteer pro bono work at LSC programs."
