Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Area, founded in 1968, works to advance, protect and promote the legal rights of communities of color, and low-income persons, immigrants, and refugees. Assisted by hundreds of pro bono attorneys, LCCR provides free legal assistance and representation to individuals on civil legal matters through direct services, impact litigation and policy advocacy.
Do you need a legal consultation or services? Do you believe you’ve been discriminated against? Are you an undocumented immigrant seeking asylum? Are you someone with limited financial resources who wants to start a business? Are you facing barriers to employment or housing as a result of a criminal record? Are your children encountering disparities in education? The Lawyers’ Committee provides a variety of direct legal services for these matters and more. Through partnerships with private law firms we are able to assist clients in need of pro bono (free) service.
