Wilhelm H. Joseph Jr., Maryland Legal Aid’s executive director, is featured in a print and video interview in today’s Daily Record.
“My dream is to have access to justice as available as milk and bread at the 7-Eleven,” [Joseph] said during a conversation last week with Daily Record reporters and editors.
Using Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “Four Freedoms” as a guideline (all people are entitled to freedom of speech and of worship and freedom from want and from fear), Legal Aid is trying to attack the roots of its clients’ problems, making its advocacy more broad-based.
“It’s really about creating a society where we are more conscious about justice, where we behave in a way that is more respectful to people and inequities,” Joseph said.
