One Mission. Eight Areas.
Lawyers for Civil Rights fosters equal opportunity and fights discrimination on behalf of people of color and immigrants through legal action, education, and advocacy.
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 eight 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.
