The Alliance for Equal Justice is a network of Washington State organizations that work together in a collaborative way to coordinate strategy and delivery of civil legal aid to people and communities that experience poverty and injustice. We are committed to identifying and dismantling all barriers that deny justice and perpetuate poverty and racial inequities. We envision a society where poverty or race is not an impediment to justice, work to expand meaningful access to justice systems and work to achieve justice within the framework of the law.
The Alliance for Equal Justice is a network of organizations providing and supporting civil legal aid to low income, vulnerable, and marginalized individuals and communities.
Recognizing that access to the civil justice system is a fundamental right, the ATJ Board works to achieve equal access for those facing economic and other significant barriers.
Our theme, Crisis and Reckoning: A Call to Dismantle Unjust Systems, brought together those who are committed to dismantling systems of oppression and poverty. Find session recordings on the Access to Justice Board’s YouTube Channel.
