Massachusetts Law Reform Institute: 50 Years of Advocating for People Living in Poverty

The Massachusetts Law Reform Institute (MLRI) is one of the nation’s leading nonprofit statewide poverty and law centers.  Its mission is to advance laws, policies, and practices that secure economic, racial, and social justice for low-income people and communities. For 50 years, MLRI has helped to shape policy that has had a significant impact on both the state and national levels, including helping to develop the Commonwealth’s Chapter 40B housing law and advancing CORI reform in Massachusetts.

O’Neill and Associates Vice President Suzanne Morse interviews Georgia Katsoulomitis, MLRI’s executive director, about the organization’s advocacy work and its 50-year history of developing policies that help people living in poverty.
