Unlike criminal cases, the Constitution does not guarantee legal assistance in civil cases. Without help, 500,000 low-income people each year must navigate complex legal issues on their own. Too often, individuals do not realize their issue could be solved by an attorney. As a result, many lose their families, homes, or livelihoods.
The Campaign for Equal Justice is our state’s only coordinated, annual fund drive for civil legal aid, and the fundraising arm of the Legal Foundation of Washington.
The Legal Foundation of Washington is a 501(c)(3) organization located in Seattle, WA, serving residents across Washington state. We are registered with Washington State Charities Program as required by law: www.sos.wa.gov/charities.
