Equal Justice Center - Our Mission
The EJC is a non-profit law firm and employment justice organization which empowers low-income families, workers, and communities to achieve fair treatment in the workplace, in the justice system, and in our shared society – regardless of immigration status.
We provide legal representation that enables working people to recover unpaid wages and combat other basic injustices they encounter in their work. We work for systemic reforms that strengthen employment rights, advance fair immigration reform, and expand access to the justice system for all working people. We protect and lift up the labor and human rights of both U.S.-born workers and transnational workers in our new global labor market. We help young undocumented students and graduates who have grown up in the U.S. secure work authorization, protection against deportation, and new freedom through DACA (Deferrred Action for Childhood Arrivals). We develop and train the next generation of employment justice advocates – workers, students, lawyers, and community members.
