And Justice for All
The Disability Law Center, along with Utah Legal Services and Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake are partnered with And Justice for All as part of a Non Profit fundraising collaboration. Despite differing missions, the Disability Law Center, Utah Legal Services, and Legal Aid Society of Salt Lake shared a common vision of creating equal access to our system of justice in Utah.
By joining forces, they hoped to provide a stable and consistent source of funding for those who cannot afford legal representation because of disability, poverty, age, migrant status, or race. Their work later expanded to include a grants program to provide funding for other nonprofit legal assistance agencies in Utah who work to ensure that every citizen has access to the courts system.
The mission of “And Justice for All” is to increase access to civil legal services for the disadvantaged and for individuals with disabilities in Utah by creating and sustaining resources to support civil legal services, sharing and consolidating resources so that services are delivered in a cost-efficient and effective manner, and strengthening the member agencies and the distinct roles they play in the delivery of civil legal assistance.
Community Legal Center
The success of the collaboration between these organizations led to the creation of the Community Legal Center, a separately funded capital campaign to house providers of legal aid in one building – resulting in one-stop assistance for clients, more collaboration opportunities, and savings in rent, utilities and other shared costs.
