About Us

Organization Summary

Equal Justice Under Law is an innovative and progressive non-profit organization in Washington, D.C., seeking systemic change through litigation across the country. Our mission is to end wealth-based inequality in the criminal justice system; we combine impact litigation with outreach and communications in pursuit of this goal.


Founded in 2014, much of our work has focused on civil rights litigation on behalf of indigent criminal defendants, including landmark cases challenging the rise of modern debtors’ prisons, the American money bail system, wealth-based suspensions of driver’s license, poverty-based home banishment, and privatized probation abuses. For a sampling of our current cases and recent successes, see our website: http://equaljusticeunderlaw.org/cases.
