The Public Justice Center (PJC) is one of Maryland’s premiere nonprofit legal advocacy organizations. We work with people and communities to confront the laws, practices, and institutions that cause injustice, poverty, and discrimination. We advocate in the courts, legislatures, and government agencies, educate the public, and build coalitions, all to advance our mission of “pursuing systemic change to build a just society.”


The human right to housing project (housing) seeks the realization of a human right to housing that is fair, affordable, habitable, and accessible with security of tenure and culatural adequacy.

the workplace justice project partners with low-wage workers, community and labor organizations, and fellow advocates to promote justice in the workplace and in the courts.

the appellate advocacy project uses appellate courts to advance progressive law reform and to achieve a right to counsel in basic human needs civil cases.

The Public Justice Center does great work for the residents of Baltimore. When a low-income individual needs representation in criminal case, that is provided for them of course. However these are not the only situations where a person could need legal advice or representation that they are not able to afford. PJC fills this need wonderfully.
