As a relatively new employee, I have been very impressed by the PJC's office environment and its work. While the staff here are incredibly talented and driven in their practice, they are also very welcoming and teaching-oriented on a day to day basis, and I feel like my professional skills have expanded rapidly in just the last few months. Since the PJC is ever challenging of the policy that drives poverty, I find the work here very dynamic and exciting. I am proud to be a member of such an efficient and responsible organization.

The Public Justice Center is indeed fulfilling its mission of creating a more just society. The PJC operates leanly and strategically, pursuing issue areas that are most in need of systemic change and in which the PJC can really make a difference through its leadership in the area. The PJC's smart and effective anti-poverty work has made it a leader in Maryland and throughout the country

PJC does incredibly valuable work. They provide real leadership in advocating for legal protections for Marylanders. I continue to learn from my work with PJC, and rely upon them for their expertise in a broad range of legal areas. I am deeply grateful for their commitment to the most vulnerable among us. Go PJC!

I work for another non-profit in Maryland. Over the past several years, I have partnered with several of PJC's staff members and volunteers over the past several years on various projects and litigation. They are smart, committed and innovative advocates for their clients and the communities they live in, work with and serve. I'm proud to have worked with PJC and I am also a happy donor.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase their budget. They do so much with very little. If they had more resources, they could so much more.

The Public Justice Center is a first rate organization. Its lawyers are incredibly talented and are fully committed to the mission of the organization. Each of the other professionals who work at the PJC are equally talented and dedicated to the work of the organization. The Board of Directors takes its fiduciary responsibilities very seriously. I am proud to be a donor and past Board member.
