One Mission. Nine Impact Areas.
Lawyers for Civil Rights works with communities of color and immigrants to fight discrimination and foster equity through creative and courageous legal advocacy, education, and economic empowerment.
While our mission is focused, we recognize that discrimination takes many forms—and that factors such as race, national origin, ethnicity, sex, religion, immigration status, gender identity, and sexual orientation can overlap and intersect with one another. We organize our work according to nine impact areas that represent critical battlegrounds for civil rights today, and that address the many ways our clients experience discrimination. As new issues arise, we move quickly to establish innovative practice areas—ensuring we remain on the front lines of justice.
