The training covers state veterans benefits under M.G.L. c. 115 (administered by the Massachusetts Department of Veterans' Services), and federal benefits for service-connected disability compensation and non-service-connected pensions (administered by the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs).

Their goal is to urge lawmakers to protect state funding for programs that provide civil legal aid to low-income Massachusetts residents.  Visit http://mlac.org/equaljusticecoalition/walktothehill.html for more information.
