About Us

The Western Center on Law & Poverty is a non-profit, public interest law firm concentrating on housing, health care, and welfare for the poor of California. Our mission is three-fold: supporting local legal service programs with technical support, and by co-counseling with them on large-impact statewide class action lawsuits; providing trainings for legal advocates, social support workers, and other advocates; and,lobbying the state legislature on poverty issues from our office in Sacramento (the first office dedicated to lobbying for the poor in the U.S.)
