To achieve our vision of equitable access to justice for all, Bet Tzedek provides person centered legal services that integrate with social support services, educate community members with the powerful knowledge of their legal rights, and uses our collective voice to reform systems.
Our attorneys and advocates help individuals, from offering advice to full legal representation.
We offer a variety of tools—from resource materials and self-help instructions to legal workshops and clinics—that empower our communities to protect and advance their own legal rights.
Using on-the-ground knowledge that we gain from addressing our clients’ legal problems, we help craft and push for policies that fix large economic and social structural injustices at the regional and state level.
We bring lawsuits intended to make broad societal change by representing entire classes of clients and individual claims with larger legal significance.
