Community Justice projects improve the effectiveness and efficiency of legal systems affecting millions of Illinoisans. Through multiple cooperative efforts with our national affiliate, Appleseed, and pro bono lawyers, we have worked to improve the federal Immigration Courts. We also collaborate with researchers, practitioners, and pro bono law firms to make the Illinois child support system better serve our children. And, as an active member of the Illinois Asset Building Group, we have advocated for fair payday lending laws and are currently expanding access to safe capital through small dollar loan initiatives.
