COVID RESPONSE

The coronavirus pandemic is illustrating just how broken our economic and legal systems are — and how urgent it is to fix them. In a public health emergency, we are only as healthy as those who are most vulnerable, least economically secure, and least able to access social and legal services.

That’s why the People’s Parity Project is organizing law students to help our trusted partners respond to some of the most urgent legal needs in this unprecedented moment.

Want to Pitch In?

Our top priority is everybody’s safety and well-being — physical and mental. If you’re a student who is able and interested in contributing (remotely, of course) to research and writing needs, we and others would love to have your help.

What We’re Working On

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE

Pressuring states to expand UI to excluded workers, especially misclassified independent contractors.

STIMULUS

Researching the requirements for direct cash payments proposed by Congress and ensuring that immigrant families are included.

PAID SICK LEAVE

Amplifying research on paid sick and family leave, like which major employers still aren’t offering paid sick leave.
