OUR MISSION
The Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights champions the legal rights of people of color, poor people, immigrants and refugees, with a special commitment to African-Americans.

OUR HISTORY
The Committee is affiliated with the national Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, begun in 1963 at the request of President John F. Kennedy. Leading members of the San Francisco Bar established the San Francisco office in 1968--shortly after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.--to advance civil rights. Towards this end, the Lawyers' Committee staff--with the assistance of hundreds of pro bono attorneys--provides free legal assistance and representation to individuals on civil legal matters. In addition, the Lawyers' Committee handles policy impact cases that focus on important civil rights issues.
