The Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law (Shriver Center) is a not-for-profit organization that provides national leadership in advancing laws and policies that secure justice to improve the lives and opportunities of people living in poverty. We work directly to win positive change through our specific advocacy initiatives, and we work to build and support the national network of attorneys engaged in those efforts. We engage in a broad range of interrelated policy areas and accomplish our mission through programs involving legislative and administrative advocacy and education, policy development, litigation, organizing, communications and training.
