Our History of Advocacy
The EJC was established in 1995 to serve as a strong voice to advocate for adequate funding of federal and state civil legal aid programs. We’re a non-partisan grassroots organization and serve as a standing committee of the Washington State Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Board.
We work at the statewide and national levels to ensure low-income people access legal help and representation. Members are kept up to date on important legal aid issues through Action Alerts and our blog, which spotlights the impact work of our partner organizations and champions for legal aid.
