MORE ABOUT THIS PROGRAM
Equal Justice Works is putting “boots on the ground” and responding to the growing crisis of homeless veterans.
Supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service, the Equal Justice Works AmeriCorps Legal Fellowship program was created in 1993 to address the gaps in the legal aid community through pro bono management and direct representation. Our AmeriCorps Legal Fellows provide legal services to thousands of people across the country each year. They work in a variety of issues areas, including veterans’ assistance, foreclosure prevention, disaster relief and medical-legal partnerships.
