About Us

Advocates for Justice exists to fight for the rights of the poor and the rights of working people, to fight for racial justice and equal rights, and to assist those who organize the poor and working people, and who advance the fight for equality. Advocates for Justice will do research, publish educational and investigative materials, and organize lawyers across the country to provide pro bono and low fee legal representation to fulfill its purpose.

Advocates for Justice will handle matters addressing questions of environmental justice, occupational safety, predatory banking and unfair foreclosure practices, credit card abuse, immigration reform, inappropriate development, the right to vote, fair elections, the rights of those with disabilities, employment, housing and education discrimination, underpayment of wages, and the right of people to organize and speak out about these issues and many others.

At present, the work of Advocates for Justice has been focused in three areas: education law, workers' rights, justice for victims of the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks.

Advocates for Justice is interested in volunteer internship arrangements at this time and attorneys interested in affiliating with Advocates for Justice for casework.
