Our work Is
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.
Collect information about how the legal system enables injustice to educate our communities.
Identify and implement best practices to improve how we address pervasive problems.
Use our collective voice in the legal profession to make the law work for everyone, not just the powerful.
