DescriptionThe Fund seeks to create a more equitable world where everyone can achieve justice. The Fund supports communities, nonprofits, and attorneys working to achieve systemic change through impact litigation. The Fund believes that ensuring equal access to the courts is necessary to remedy systemic injustice, particularly when the litigation seeks broad, systemic change. Grants are awarded to nonprofit legal service providers, private attorneys, and/or small law firms seeking to advance justice in the areas of civil rights, human rights, anti-poverty, and environmental justice cases that impact a marginalized group. Most grants are for class actions, but multi-plaintiff and environmental justice cases that aim to significantly affect a larger system are encouraged. Grants are usually awarded for a particular case, but occasionally the Fund will support a series of cases connected by a common strategy. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
