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.

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.
