About Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights
Overview of LCCR
Founded in 1968, LCCR works to advance, protect and promote the legal rights of communities of color, and low-income persons, immigrants, and refugees. Assisted by hundreds of pro bono attorneys, LCCR provides free legal assistance and representation to individuals on civil legal matters through direct services, impact litigation and policy advocacy. LCCR believes:
• Injustice must be rooted out.
• Equal access to justice depends on access to quality legal services.
• Neither race nor immigration status should affect a person’s success or failure.
• Economic empowerment is key to the civil rights movement.
• The true needs of the community must be central to any litigation or advocacy agenda.
LCCR’s current work includes:
• Investigating claims that the Oakland Housing Authority Police Department routinely stops and issues citations for young black men, placing their families at risk of losing their housing.
• Representing people who are homeless against CalTrans, which has failed to give proper notice before raiding homeless encampments and destroying personal property.
• Representing immigrants and refugees subjected to deplorable conditions in U.S.... Customs & Border Protection holding cells.
• Challenging discriminatory enrollment policies impacting English language learners in school districts throughout California.
• Reviewing the impact of high traffic fines and fees on low income communities and communities of color in California.
• Representing people unfairly impacted by predatory bail practices, especially women and people of color who often foot the bill for their loved ones’ incarceration.
• Reducing barriers for immigrant business owners.
