About Us

Emergency Legal Responders (ELR) is a Louisiana-based legal collective

founded in the aftermath of Hurricanes Irma and Maria to provide support, training,

and resources to legal professionals and community members before, during, and

after disasters. Our mission is manifested in three programmatic pillars: (1) Free

legal clinics and increased access to legal information and resources for the public;

(2) Disaster law training for legal aid providers; and (3) A unified, national

framework for volunteers and legal organizations.
