About Us

Community Law in Action (CLIA) was founded in 1998, with support from an Open Society Institute Community Fellowship, to teach high school students in Baltimore about the law and how to advocate and take action to improve their own schools and communities. Throughout its 22-year history, the youth-adult partnership model has remained paramount in each of CLIA’s programs. Young people and caring adult professionals work in collaboration and achieve collective impact through learning, advocating, and inspiring change. CLIA develops young people to be leaders by connecting them to opportunities to amplify their voices, cultivate their skills, and actively participate in the process of positive community change.
