Dear <<First Name>>,

Tomorrow is our Just 24 fundraising campaign where we need your help to raise $80,000 to fund access to justice, and I have some very exciting news. By the grace of God, a group of generous donors has committed $10,000 in dollar-for-dollar matching funds! Whether you give $500, $250, $100, or even $24, your gift will be DOUBLED. We are so grateful! 

Will you give tomorrow so we can double your gift?

Early gifts count towards this generous match, but gifts after 11:59 PM tomorrow will not. You can make an early gift here to make sure we get all $10,000 offered!

Did you know that in March of this year, 20% of adults in DC were living in households behind on their rent? There’s currently an eviction moratorium in place, keeping families in their homes, but leaders and community members across the city agree that an avalanche of evictions is coming.

Our neighbors, tenants and small landlords, need you to invest in legal aid now so that when this storm comes we're ready to stand with as many people as possible. 

CLADC has experience preventing unjust evictions and negotiating between tenants and landlords to keep families in their homes while getting back on track with rent, but we need your help to do this. For some of our neighbors, the worst hour of their crisis will come after the public health emergency.

Will you invest in CLADC’s work to have your gift doubled and make sure our neighbors won't face this crisis alone? 

Our clinics currently have a waiting list and we get more calls everyday. With a pending housing emergency across the city, we don’t anticipate things slowing down. We need your help to meet the legal aid needs of our neighbors in DC.

Would you also be praying for us tomorrow? Please pray for the campaign to go smoothly and for us to reach our goal. The campaign is about more than money - it’s about us ensuring that we can continue the important work of advocating for our neighbors who need legal services to access justice. 

Would you also pray for our clients and the challenges they are facing? (If you're signed up to receive our prayer updates, you'll get more specific requests on Wednesday).

Thank you for being part of the CLADC community. I hope you’ll join us tomorrow and invest in bringing access to justice to each and every DC resident. 


Gratefully,
