Columbia Legal Services (CLS) is a not for profit organization employing lawyers and legal workers who provide legal assistance to low-income and special needs people and organizations in Washington. CLS has recently reorganized and now maintains five offices.
Northwest Justice Project's mission is to secure justice in a democratic society by working for equal access to the legal system by empowering low-income persons and communities through education about their legal rights and obligations, and by promoting respect for human dignity through legal advocacy.
The Northwest Women's Law Center has been working for nearly 30 years to make these concepts a reality for women in the Pacific Northwest. By using the law, one of the most powerful tools in our democratic society, we improve women's social, economic and legal status. We bring ground-breaking lawsuits to change the law, advocate for legislation that advances women's rights, and educate women and the community about women's legal rights. And we do so on virtually any issue that affects women, because the challenges women face are multi-dimensional. Please join us in our effort to advance women's legal rights and make our society more just.
