The Legal Impact Network is a dynamic collaborative of advocacy organizations from across the country working with communities to end poverty and achieve racial justice at the federal, state, and local levels.
The Legal Impact Network brings together strong legal and policy advocates from throughout the country who are using innovative, coordinated strategies to address poverty and advance racial justice. Our advocacy helps people meet their basic human needs, supports working families, promotes the well-being of children, and advances opportunity and justice for all. The network currently reaches 36 organizations in 33 states and the District of Columbia.
Our members are driving coordinated strategies to win broad policy and legal victories for and with poor communities and communities of color. Through working groups and convenings, our advocates share victories and expertise, and develop resources, strategies, model policies and legal tools to maximize impact across the country.
