Rhode Island Lawyers for the Public Interest

Community Partners

The Center for Justice is committed to lawyering in support of community organizing and collective action.

We believe that social change is never accomplished through litigation alone. Rather, it is when the people affected by a problem are at the forefront of a movement that change can truly begin.

Our current core community partners include:

The George Wiley Center

The George Wiley Center is a statewide group actively committed to local community organizing for the purpose of creating social and economic justice through changes in public policy.

The Pro Bono Collaborative

The Pro Bono Collaborative (PBC) at Roger Williams University School of Law forges partnerships between law firms, RWU law students and community-based organizations that need pro bono legal services for their organization and/or their clients.  The PBC identifies unmet legal needs and creates pro bono projects that address those needs.

Community Action Partnership of Providence (CAPP)

CAPP, working in partnership with the community, provides culturally competent supportive services and programs to Providence residents in need, to promote their achievement of economic self-sufficiency.

Fuerza Laboral

The mission of Fuerza Laboral is to develop leaders to confront social injustice. As workers themselves are on the front lines of the injustices they face, they are experts on this injustice and are the best equipped to solve their problems with powerful and creative actions that obtain concrete results.
