The Equal Justice Center is a non-profit law firm and employment justice organization which empowers low-income families, workers, and communities to achieve fair treatment in the workplace, in the justice system, and in our shared society – regardless of immigration status.
EJC provides legal representation that enables working men and women to recover unpaid wages and combat other basic injustices they encounter in their work. EJC works for systemic reforms that strengthen employment rights, advances fair immigration reform, and expands access to the justice system for all working people. It protects and lifts up the labor and human rights of both U.S.-born workers and transnational workers in our new global labor market. EJC helps young undocumented students and graduates who have grown up in the U.S. secure work authorization, protection against deportation, and new freedom through DACA (Deferrred Action for Childhood Arrivals). EJC develops and trains the next generation of employment justice advocates – workers, students, lawyers, and community members.
