The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law was formed at the request of President John F. Kennedy to mobilize the power of the private bar to secure equal justice for all, targeting in particular the inequities confronting African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities.
For 57 years, we have stood at the forefront of some of the most important civil rights issues, including voting rights, hate incidents, equal educational and economic opportunities, criminal justice reform, housing discrimination, and more.
Your gift will fund emergency litigation to protect the election -- on Election Day and in the following weeks if necessary. You will fund efforts to ensure a racially just Census count. You will fund protection of the Constitutional rights of protesters. And you will help us advocate for justice, democracy, opportunity, and prosperity.
