Legal Assistance

Southern Echo provides legal assistance in the form of training, research, analysis and counsel to grassroots community organizations and community leaders in support of their community organizing work.

There are two primary analytical areas on which our legal assistance is focused:

  • Analysis of the duties and responsibilities of governmental and educational institutions, public officials and educators under existing or proposed federal and state laws, county and municipal ordinances, and existing or proposed administrative regulations;and
  • Analysis of the choices community people have in the exercise of their rights under existing and proposed federal and state laws, county and municipal ordinances, and existing or proposed administrative regulations.
