Safeguard justice for all - give today!

Nov 4

For more than 111 years, NLADA has provided solution-based and creative leadership to the community of equal justice advocates. We are America's oldest and largest nonprofit association devoted to excellence in the delivery of legal services to those who cannot afford counsel. NLADA has pioneered access to justice at the national, state, and local levels, and works to establish and strengthen the nation's public defense and civil legal aid systems. There is no other legal organization that touches on all the access points of poverty as does NLADA.

NLADA's Community of Advocates for equity and equal justice is uniquely positioned to drive change. We are among the first responders in the justice system. As civil legal aid and public defense attorneys and staff, legal navigators, private bar allies, and members of the impacted community, we witness and fight against the intersectional symptoms of systemic racism every day. We witness the human consequences of these systems and we witness the patterns of these impacts. We know the law and its limitations.

Collectively, we have a deep bench of nationwide experts who work in virtually every legal system as well as other systems that perpetuate racial inequity. Together, we will move the needle forward on racial equity and justice. NLADA members and partners must be equipped with the cutting edge and innovative tools needed to actively and effectively address race equity issues in their offices, courtrooms, policy tables, and in the community. The NLADA Racial Equity Initiative will actively support the transition from racial equity awareness to ACTION and IMPLEMENTATION.
