Our Principal Priorities Include

Inspiring Equal Justice

  • Our Constitution is color-blind . . . In respect of civil rights, all citizens are equal before the law. The humblest is the peer of the most powerful.

    John Marshall Harlan

  • The failure to invest in civil justice is directly related to the increase in criminal disorder. The more people feel there is injustice the more it becomes part of their psyche

    Wilhelm Joseph

  • It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope

    Robert F. Kennedy
