About The Org
Emergency Legal Responders
The mission of the Emergency Legal Responders is to ensure access to civil justice for individuals faced with legal emergencies, and empower socially vulnerable groups; including people with low incomes, ethnic minorities, elderly people, people with disabilities, LGBTQ individuals, and individuals who often find themselves trapped within the justice gap.
What We Do
Emergency Legal Responders (ELR) is a New Orleans, Louisiana based 501(c)(3) organization. ELR is composed of attorneys, advocates, and community members who have worked for years to provide direct legal services to those affected by disasters in Louisiana and other disaster-affected areas throughout the United States. Most importantly, ELR attorneys are disaster law experts, and in particular FEMA law experts. ELR has become the source that both the community and other organizations turn to for disaster assistance in Southeastern Louisiana.
ELR was established in 2017 following the closure of Louisiana's only statewide disaster legal assistance focused organization. As local attorneys we realized that Louisiana residents were continuously faced with disasters --ranging from natural, to social, to economic. Disasters often lead to legal emergencies and a significant part of Louisiana's most vulnerable communities were then forced to navigate the complex system of resources with extremely limited assistance. ELR was created to fill this gap and ensure access to civil justice for disaster-affected Louisiana residents. ELR has based its work on the holistic viewpoint that personal empowerment comes from legal advocacy, direct community services, and sustainable education models.
