The People’s Legal Center (the “Legal Center”) is a nonprofit public legal center that provides public legal education, resources, and representation to community members, especially immigrants and youth, in the City and County of San Francisco. The Legal Center provides case management and referral services, legal educational workshops and classes, and affordable legal aid and representation to those that cannot afford it.
By nature, America is a fairly litigious society, and attorneys are generally required for someone to enforce and assert their rights. This is not a problem for people with financial capital and assets. Those without these resources, however, may find their rights compromised. The Legal Center strives to fight this inequity by offering case management and referral services, legal education and resources, and affordable legal aid and representation to those that might not otherwise afford it. Additionally, The Legal Center offers curriculums that teach community members how to dissect and understand legal terminologies and concepts so that they can use the knowledge to advocate for themselves.
The Legal Center strives to benefit the community by offering high quality legal workshops and representation that are staffed by well-qualified legal professionals and educators who possess an affinity for equal access to legal rights by all constituents regardless of ethnicity, gender, class, or creed.
