Access to Justice Initiative
An existing gap in the enforcement of the law leaves working women and their children behind.
Poverty, lack of job mobility, and fear of employer retaliation keep far too many workers silent in the face of unfair treatment. Studies confirm that women, people of color, and low-wage workers are much less likely to have access to legal representation.
Advice & Counseling: This unique national hotline (online and telephone) gives women workers and their families the tools they need when they need them.
Know Your Rights: Toolkits for workers and advocates empower individuals and help them understand the law.
Fellowships: Our range of fellowship, clerkship, and internship programs prepare the next generation of women’s rights advocates.
