In 1978, Virginia's legal aid community created a statewide poverty law education center. Led by Executive Director Jack Harris, the organization's small but dedicated team of five began tackling the issues impacting low-income Virginians.
44 years and more than 20 staff members later, the Virginia Poverty Law Center continues this work, pushing for laws and policies that benefit Virginia's lower-income population.
