We use creative, artistic methodologies to educate and empower our communities on their legal rights. Moreover, we provide community-based services such as Know Your Rights forums and legal coaching for those that have been impacted by the criminal system.

Areas of concentration are on: criminal defense

Under the supervising attorney, the legal volunteer will conduct Know Your Rights Trainings, conduct client interviews, intake assessments, and consult with client's as to their potential legal strategy pertaining to a criminal defense. The volunteer will also work collaboratively alongside our partner organizations that focus on social justice, racial equity, human rights and reform/abolition.

Hours can be completed on a flexible schedule. Possibility of a stipend available.
