We lead the fight for economic and racial justice by litigating, shaping policy, and training and connecting people in the advocacy community.
We don’t just fight for communities affected by poverty—we work alongside them, advocating for solutions that are informed by their lived experiences
We convene and connect advocates, community leaders, and activists across the country so they can share ideas, resources, and get the tools they need.
We build the capacity and skills of equal justice lawyers and activists to champion economic and racial justice in their fields.
From litigating and shaping policies in Illinois to training and convening multi-state networks of public interest attorneys, we work with and for the communities we serve to make equal justice and economic opportunity a reality.
A Fair Tax can drive economic and racial justice in Illinois.
New alliance partners with Racial Justice Institute.
Our tax code is both a symptom of and instrument of systemic racism – and, in short, it can be fundamentally unfair
The presence of police officers in our schools and their detrimental impact on Black and Brown children is well documented.
