Our Principal Priorities Include

Inspiring Equal Justice

  • The success of any legal system is measured by its fidelity to the universal ideal of justice

    Earl Warren

  • You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man’s freedom. You can only be free if I am free

    Clarence S. Darrow

  • Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly

    Martin Luther King, Jr.
