I had the privilege of being an Equal Justice Works Fellow at the Equal Justice Center from 2008 through 2010. I have personally witnessed the incredible heart and legal skill of the attorneys, law students, staff, and volunteers of the Equal Justice Center who make its mission possible. The workers who are helped by your donations receive first class legal representation at no cost to them, and always to recover a fair day's pay for a fair day's work and equitable treatment in the workplace. Please give to the Equal Justice Center as generously as you can. Your donations are what ultimately helps low income workers be able to exercise their legal remedies against oftentimes unscrupulous employers, giving them back not only their wages, but their dignity and self-confidence. Your generosity will pay off. Thank you!

This well-run organization fills a vital role in helping working people get the pay they have earned. We are reminded in Deuteronomy (24:15) that an employer must pay workers promptly "because they are poor and need their pay." The Equal Justice Center, by helping workers obtain pay that has been wrongfully denied, truly brings about justice.
