Lawyer Works and Sleeps in Shack to Raise Money for Her Nonprofit Law Firm

If you’re looking for a way to help, check out the link to the GoFundMe page.  Better yet, if you are in the Detroit area, reach out to the organizer to see how you can get involved:

“”A Detroit lawyer who founded a nonprofit law firm to help the poor is working and sleeping in a makeshift shack until she raises at least $18,500 on a GoFundMe page, with the aim of helping more clients. Lawyer Lisa Walinske has a home, but she appears to be homeless during the “campout for justice,” the Detroit Free Press reports. A video by the newspaper is here. “We need money to pay a staff person to coordinate things, so we can help more people,” Walinske tells the newspaper. “We want to increase our outreach efforts, and we also need to pay the heating bills for several of our community properties where we’re housing people with no place to stay.””
