Law Cafe Employee Layoff Emergency Relief Fund

The Law Cafe was forced to shut down due to the closure of the UC Hastings campus resulting from Covid19. 

Because of this, we were forced to layoff our entire staff (all hourly employees) who depend on this income for their livelihood. They have families near and far that also rely on their earnings. Once we shut down, we essentially generate no income to provide for our employees.

These employees are also currently struggling to find other temporary jobs due to the nature of this virus. 

We are asking the community to lend any kind of help to keep them afloat until we are able to start operating (which could be in August 2020). Please note 100% of the money will be distributed amongst the employees and not management.

Our deepest appreciation to anyone who is able to lend a hand. 

Please help share this posting @thelawcafe.
