Since we opened our doors less than 6 years ago, as a nonprofit focused on providing free, accessible, and righteous community lawyers for people harmed by mass incarceration and the War on Drugs, Root & Rebound has provided support to 90,000 people. We have grown from 1 to 5 sites in California and nationally and have gained a national reputation as a leader in the movement for criminal justice reform.
Now Root & Rebound needs your support in raising $30,000 so we can expand our capacity to help the system impacted families we serve. The money raised through this campaign goes directly to expanding our team, sustaining our growth, and supporting our clients--to help them rebuild their lives.

“The process of anything legal is intimidating. You don’t know the language, you don’t understand the paperwork, you don’t understand the terms, you don’t understand what you’re up against.” — Ashley, Root & Rebound Client, Mother, & Teacher
