about us

who we are

We are your community’s civil rights lawyers. For over 50 years, we’ve fought groundbreaking legal battles in pursuit of a more equitable society.

We fight discrimination against all people, but we put special focus on the central role that current and historic race discrimination plays in sustaining inequity. We know that achieving lasting change requires much more than “leveling the playing field.” Our bold goal is to dismantle the historic mosaic of intersecting injustices created from the racial bias enshrined in our laws and institutions, to fight all forms of ongoing discrimination and promote justice in reality, not just form.
