Description

"Access to justice and equal opportunity under the law are fundamental American values. We ensure that laws and policies provide people with low-income access to adequate health care, decent housing, a safety net, and opportunities to achieve their full potential. We advocate positive policy and systems changes on a range of issues, including asset building, budget and taxes, community justice, economic justice, health care, housing, and challenges facing women and girls. Most importantly, we ensure that the voices of maginalized people are heard."
