Economic Justice

The Economic Justice Project’s mission is to contribute to the economic growth of low-income communities by helping individuals achieve economic self-sufficiency and develop sustainable businesses.

Launched in September 2001, the Economic Justice Project (“EJP”) provides free legal assistance, business support, technical assistance, and education to minority, immigrant, and low-income entrepreneurs and small-business owners. EJP’s work furthers our vision of economic empowerment in disadvantaged communities by helping individuals achieve economic self-sufficiency and develop sustainable businesses. We also work with small-business owners who operate community-based businesses creating local jobs in underserved neighborhoods.

By connecting low-income entrepreneurs to law firms providing pro bono legal services, we work to close the opportunity gap and ensure that everyone receives high quality legal representation. The businesses we support are economic engines fueling the growth of our Commonwealth.
