Who We Are: The Equal Justice Center is a non-profit law firm and employment justice organization with offices in Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston. Our employees enjoy a collaborative environment, autonomy in their work, and a shared sense of mission empowering low-income families to achieve fair treatment in the workplace, in the justice system, and in our society – regardless of immigration status.  

Our clients are predominantly immigrant and low-wage working people. Our employment and immigration legal teams are known for helping our clients protect their basic employment rights, fight against discrimination in the workplace, receive DACA status, become new U.S. citizens, and combat labor trafficking. We also advocate for systemic reform to lift wages and improve workplace rights and conditions for low-wage workers, and to uphold the rights of the immigrant community. 

The EJC affirmatively values and seeks diversity in its staff and does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, immigration status, religion, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, disability, family status, or veteran status. Members of all underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
