Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, formed at the request of President John F. Kennedy in 1963. Today, we are one of America's finest civil rights legal organizations. We work inside and outside the courtroom for a just America, fighting voter suppression, ensuring equal access to the ballot box, combating the racial disparities that infect our criminal justice system, addressing economic inequality, advocating for fair housing, promoting equal educational opportunity, confronting the rise in hate crimes, and more. For more than 56 years strong, we have been fighting to secure equal justice for all through the rule of law, targeting in particular the inequities confronting African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities.
