We don’t just enforce the laws — we help create them, too. With innovative reforms inspired by the real people we serve, we work to make the law stronger, better, and more just.
Partnering with advocates and community organizations across the country, we fight for your right to a fair paycheck, a safe and equitable workplace, and schools that do the right thing when you experience harassment or assault.
Learn what your rights are so you can navigate your situation and make the best decision for you.
Unfortunately, we are unable to accept new applications for our Free Legal Advice & Counseling program at this time. We will be reopening in June 2023.
We have trained legal advocates and lawyers on staff to guide you through your legal issue.
