The Shriver Center on Poverty Law fights for economic and racial justice.

Over our 50-year history, we have secured hundreds of victories with and for people living in poverty in Illinois and across the country. Today, we litigate, shape policy, and train and convene multi-state networks of lawyers, community leaders, and activists nationwide. Together, we are building a future where all people have equal dignity, respect, and power under the law.

The Shriver Center welcomes media inquiries regarding our efforts to advance social and economic justice for low-income people. Contact Ishena Robinson at 312.549.9879 for more information.
