All of us must do more to ensure that justice is accessible for everyone. Equal justice makes our communities healthier, more just places to live. Through legal aid, we can help families in crisis return to safe, productive lives and preempt a spiral of costly social problems.
The Alliance for Equal Justice depends on caring individuals like you to support civil legal aid programs and ensure that everyone in Washington has meaningful access to our justice system. Alliance members rely on your charitable contributions, volunteer hours and involvement.
