Championing Balanced Economic Growth
President John F. Kennedy famously said that “a rising tide lifts all boats.” Indeed, an improved economy should benefit all persons. But not all boats start with the same amount of ballast.
We will be announcing details of our Equalizer Fund in the coming year: as funding allows, the New England Legal Foundation will provide legal advocacy on behalf of small businesses who are unable to afford private legal counsel to defend their right to earn a living and who can serve as an example and inspiration to others to embrace capitalism and to achieve their American Dream: Women-owned businesses, Black-owned businesses, New American-owned businesses, Veteran-owned businesses, Start-up and college entrepreneur-owned businesses, and others, can directly benefit from legal services provided by NELF’s Pro Bono Bank and by legal representation at administrative, trial and appellate levels to equalize the odds against oppressive bureaucracy or special interests who aim to crush capitalism in the crib.
“But… if one section of the country is standing still, then sooner or later a dropping tide drops all the boats, whether the boats are in Boston or whether they are in this community.”
President John F. Kennedy, September 23, 1960
We Fight For You
These small businesses can illuminate a path for success and economic freedom and be an example for hope, if given the chance. They need someone in their corner. Please join us by your membership, your donation, your time and your efforts to stand tall for these individuals and businesses who otherwise would be unable to stand for themselves.
