Working in partnership with these professionals, Towards Justice empowers workers to insist on the dignity of work. If you are an attorney or organization interested in joining the Towards Justice Collaborating Attorneys Network, click HERE.
Towards Justice educates workers and the community about employment rights, wage theft, how to defend against exploitation, and how to seek redress.
Towards Justice defends economic stability for working families by providing direct legal services to low-wage workers. Towards Justice’s flexible and strategic attorneys represent clients who otherwise would go without legal representation, bring cases that redress wrongs against large groups of workers, and advance legal analyses that protect future workers. Using impact litigation strategies, Towards Justice creates opportunity for working families today and tomorrow. In our first two years alone, Towards Justice conducted legal intakes for nearly 1000 potential clients, and represented 320 clients. In that time, Towards Justice recovered more than $850,000 in overdue or unpaid wages on behalf of its clients. This allowed clients to pay off debts, support their families, stabilize their housing situations, and move one step closer to the American Dream.
