'Walk for Justice' to benefit William Booth Legal Aid Clinic

 Coinciding with the celebration of 20 years in operation, the Salvation Army’s William Booth Legal Aid Clinic is hosting its Second Annual Walk for Justice at the Detroit Zoo on Saturday, May 31, starting at 8 a.m.

All proceeds benefit The Salvation Army’s William Booth Legal Aid Clinic, which has helped resolve nearly 20,000 cases affecting low income families, individuals and U.S. Military Veterans. The clinic provides quality guidance and advocacy in a wide variety of areas including family matters, housing issues, credit issues and disability. 

Admission is $35 in advance and $40 the day of the event. Law students can register for $20 and children, up to 16 years old, are admitted for free. The registration fee includes zoo admission, parking, a Walk for Justice t-shirt, refreshments and an entry into a door prize drawing. 

Rounding out the event will be face painting, clowns and games for children, as well as a silent auction featuring items donated by local businesses. A special prize will also be awarded to the person who receives the highest total pledge amount. 

With the support of local sponsors, last year’s Walk for Justice drew hundreds of walkers who enjoyed a day at the zoo while raising funds to help ensure the William Booth Legal Aid Clinic can continue providing legal assistance to metro Detroiters in need. 

Since 1994, The William Booth Legal Aid Clinic has been providing legal counsel to participants of The Salvation Army Detroit Harbor Light Center, as well as individuals within the community at or below the poverty level.
