Spread the Word
We’re on all the major social media platforms. Follow us on these channels, “like” and share our posts and help us build awareness of the good work we do.
Look up your local legislators and drop them a line. Remind them that legal aid is a front-line response and in times of crisis, it’s more important than ever to ensure people have equitable access to the courts.
Keep an eye out here for local measures (Clark County or SW Washington) or advocacy efforts that are important to us! (You can also sign up for our mailing list at the bottom of this page to be notified when new things are moving and shaking)
We are so lucky in Washington state to have some great organizations affecting change statewide.
The Equal Justice Coalition (EJC) is our state’s grassroots advocacy effort for legal aid, working to protect and increase public funding. The best way for people to get plugged in with the advocacy efforts of the EJC is by signing up for their email list. They send out email updates about state and federal legal aid funding, and provide people with easy opportunities to contact their legislators and engage in advocacy efforts at the state and local level.
We are a proud member of the Washington state Alliance for Equal Justice. The Alliance is a network of Washington State organizations that work together in a collaborative way to coordinate strategy and delivery of civil legal aid to people and communities that experience poverty and injustice.
If you’re an individual, check out their website for some awesome resources and a bunch of good information.
If you are an organization, join the alliance!

In Washington state, we are fortunate to participate in coordinated funding efforts that are greater than the sum of their parts.
The Campaign for Equal Justice is our state’s only coordinated, annual fund drive for legal aid and the fundraising arm of the Legal Foundation of Washington. Legal Foundation of Washington is a significant grantor to our organization, and they can only maintain these grants through income from the Campaign for Equal Justice. The best thing about this is that each dollar raised out of Clark County through the campaign comes back to us as $3-$9 in our annual grant.
