ESSENTIAL LEGAL SERVICES FOR PEOPLE IN NEED
Since 1993 EJA has funded law students and recent law graduates at legal aid programs throughout the country. EJA Fellows fight to protect the rights of domestic violence victims, veterans, the elderly, people with disabilities, immigrants, voters, the homeless and other low-income Americans most at risk.
Woman and children victimized by domestic violence do not get the legal help they need.
Our Veterans do not receive the support they need with housing, employment and health issues.
Families are forced into homelessness by wrongful evictions and preventable foreclosures.
The elderly and poor have no recourse when they fall prey to scams in the marketplace.
The disabled are discriminated against without the representation they need to protect their rights.
Immigrants may face deportation without due process of law.
The promise of equal justice is the promise of America. “With liberty and justice for all,” are words recited every day by our nation’s schoolchildren. It is a promise that has not been kept.
