Legal Aid At Work, June 2021
A digital celebration for the 105th anniversary of a legal aid organization benefiting low-income workers and their families.
A COMEDY ABOUT LONELINESS IN THE AGE OF CONNECTION
Emily, a 29-year-old would-be writer, retreats home to O’ahu after Manhattan finally gets the best of her. But trading one island for another doesn’t help. When she stumbles into a gig as an actor on a shock-jock radio dating show, she falls for her fake love interest and finds herself strangely determined to turn that fantasy into reality. Told through a playful combination of phone calls, voicemails, and live radio spots, Stanton’s quirky show illustrates life with a thousand friends on Facebook, but no one to talk to on a Saturday night.
Legal Aid at Work is a nonprofit legal services organization that has been assisting low-income, working families for more than 100 years. We use four main strategies to enforce and strengthen workers’ rights: free clinics and helplines, free legal info, litigation, and policy advocacy. www.legalaidatwork.org
