Above the Line Network in the News

Since its launch month, The Above the Line Network (ATLN) has been featured in several national and local media outlets, shining a light on the distinct challenges that the middle class faces in getting the legal help they need:

Representing more than 50% of our nation’s population, the middle class is “above the line” of income eligibility for already overstretched free legal aid but struggles to find affordable and quality legal help in the current market. ATLN was created to address this gap, and already has more than 60 members in from around the country and in Canada who are working to better serve the middle class.

To learn more about ATLN and the impressive Advisory Committee overseeing the network, check out the project website or contact Roya Samarghandi, CBF Associate Director of Advocacy, Innovation, and Training, at rsamarghandi@chicagobarfoundation.org.
