Recently interviewed by the Department of Justice, Ann-Margaret’s words truly reflect her commitment to Street Law’s mission. In her own words, she shared “what I like to do is enable and work with people who don’t have a voice to make sure that they have a voice where it is needed and where it is wanted.”Congratulations, Ann-Margaret 💐 ...

Imagine facing everyday life without the ability to prove your identity. Rupert, who was experiencing homelessness, found himself in this very situation. With no original documents, obtaining a replacement birth certificate seemed like an impossible task for Rupert. This was until, Rupert called our free advice line and started receiving the legal assistance he needed. We reached out to the Malaysian Consulate to obtain Rupert's birth certificate, got his documents translated, and sent a persuasive letter to the Department of Transport.Despite initial resistance from the Department of Transport, our persistence paid off! After our direct advocacy, the Department of Transport finally accepted his application. 🚗📸 Now, Rupert can prove his identity and gain access to essential services. Without our legal advocacy and assistance, Rupert would have been left without crucial identification. 🙌 *Name changed for confidentiality #successstory #changinglives #communitysupport #homeless #endhomeless #accesstojustice 🌟🤝 ...
