Who is the Alliance for Equal Justice?

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.

Learn why we do this work:

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 abides by a set of guiding principles embodied in the Access to Justice Board’s Hallmarks of an Effective Civil Legal Aid Delivery System, Collaboration Principles, ATJ Technology Principles and Performance Standards. The Alliance also subscribes to and works together to further the goals of the Access to Justice Board’s State Plan for the Delivery of Civil Legal Aid to Low-Income People.

The Alliance provides advocacy and leadership trainings and undertakes initiatives to advance equity and justice to further this vision. Alliance members use the ATJ Community list serve to share regular updates, information and news with the Alliance and larger equity and justice community.
