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.

Today @GovKathyHochul committed to nominating a Chief Judge for #TheCourtNYDeserves. Our coalition of 135+ organizations agrees.

BREAKING: 48K University of Calfornia TAs, postdocs & other student workers just walked off the job.

It's the largest strike in the US since 2019.

Many UC workers earn < $24k/yr. A PhD student I spoke to said they donate blood plasma to make ends meet.

Unfortunately, we are required to postpone today's event on what comes next in the fight for federal court reform. We look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled event soon!

🚨 Some news! 🚨

We're thrilled to have @BillyCorriher joining us to lead our work to build state courts that work for people, not corporate profits.

Please join us in welcoming him on his first day!
