Dear Legal Momentum Supporter,


                During these challenging times amidst the COVID-19 crisis, Legal Momentum, the nation’s first and oldest legal defense and education fund for women, urges everyone to be safe and be healthy.


                Our SYMS | Legal Momentum Helpline continues to be available to provide legal information and referrals to all women and girls, at no cost, regarding sex discrimination in the workplace, school or home. 


REACH us LMHelpline.org
EMAIL us help@LMHelpline.org
CALL us (971) 3 LEGAL - 1 (971) 353-4251


                Our free SYMS | Legal Momentum Helpline receives calls annually from all 50 states and Puerto Rico and is equipped to handle a range of issues including sexual assault and harassment, domestic violence, sex discrimination in education and employment, and pregnancy discrimination.


                We work with helpline callers one-on-one to create individualized action plans. After these consultations our helpline callers are often able to advocate for themselves without additional support from legal representatives. Our staff listens compassionately, spending as much time as needed, distilling down the central concerns of each caller so that we can best inform and enable them to take action themselves or give them well-credentialed referrals that pertain directly to each caller’s area(s) of concern.


                The helpline also plays a vital role in helping Legal Momentum identify unmet challenges to women’s and girls’ physical and economic rights and is, therefore, part of the legal solution to those challenges.


                We encourage you to share this SYMS | Legal Momentum Helpline information. This assists in making the helpline available to all our nation’s women and girls so that anyone being subjected to sex discrimination in these challenging times - in the workplace, school or home - can be assisted.


                Thank you for your ongoing support - you make our work possible! Stay safe and stay healthy.
