The fourth annual Walk for Justice to benefit the Salvation Army’s William Booth Legal Aid Clinic is scheduled Saturday at the Detroit Zoo. Pictured at the Salvation Army Office in Detroit where they gathered to finalize plans for the event are (left to right) William Booth Legal Aid Clinic Director Amy Roemer, Matthew Nagaj, Nicole Huddleston, Rebekah White, Lindsey Masters and Sean Fox. The clinic has helped resolve more than 20,000 legal issues affecting low income families, individuals, and U.S. military veterans. The clinic provides guidance and advocacy in a wide variety of areas including family matters, housing, credit and disability issues.  Since 1994, the clinic has been providing legal counsel to participants of The Salvation Army Detroit Harbor Light Center, as well as individuals within the community at or below the poverty level.
