Take Action

Take action to promote the Campaign for Justice’s central goal of spreading awareness of the critical role that legal aid plays in strengthening the legal safety net and leveling the playing field for low-income Californians. 

Support the
Justice Gap Fund

One sure way to increase access to justice statewide is to donate to the Justice Gap Fund. Your donations are distributed by the State Bar of California Legal Services Trust Fund Program to all qualified legal services providers throughout California.
