Support Legal Aid at Work

We deliver on the promise of justice for low-income people by providing free direct services on helplines and in clinics; by advocating for legal and policy change; by providing free information and training on employment rights; and by litigating individual, impact, and class actions.

Our success depends on the generosity of law firms, corporations, foundations, the State Bar trust fund, and individuals.

We welcome donations large and small to our annual appeal, annual event, and special campaigns. And we invite you to designate Legal Aid at Work as a cy pres recipient.
