Our work Is
Just Beginning

 

We’re not going to litigate our way out of our current crisis. But throwing our hands up won’t get us anywhere either. It’s going to take deep, hard organizing work—a true movement dedicated to real justice, within and outside of our legal system. Will you join us?

About Us

The People’s Parity Project is made up of law students and attorneys organizing nationwide to end how the legal profession—and the law itself—enables injustice.

We are committed to demystifying and dismantling the coercive legal tools that allow the powerful to get away with violating workers’ rights, ripping off consumers, and shielding corporations and the courts from accountability.

KNOWLEDGE

Collect information about how the legal system enables injustice to educate our communities.

SOLUTIONS

Identify and implement best practices to improve how we address pervasive problems.

POWER

Use our collective voice in the legal profession to make the law work for everyone, not just the powerful.
