CHICO, Calif. - A law firm from Southern California held a workshop Sunday in Chico, in hopes of helping Camp Fire evacuees, with a special appearance from Robert Kennedy Jr., the son of the late New York Senator Bobby Kennedy.

At the Chico Guild Hall off of Nord Avenue, Kennedy Jr. teamed up with Baum Hedlund, a firm that won $289 million from Monsanto claiming their weed killer was a carcinogen.

Lawyers in Chico helped victims with insurance claims and how civil lawsuits can recover damages from the fire.

Kennedy Jr. says he wants PG&E to step up relief efforts for victims.

"PG&E needs to step up and take responsibility in the choices it made and in investing in this community (Paradise). And making sure that it gets rebuild. Rebuild it in a way that this doesn't happen again," Kennedy Jr. said.
