OneJustice

OneJustice (www.OneJustice.org) brings justice where it is needed most.  As many as 5 million low-income Californians required legal help each year.  Without assistance, legal problems can isolate individuals from employment, housing, health care, and safety.  But help is hard to come by, with only one legal aid attorney for every 5,000 people in need.  The problem is pronounced in rural areas of the state – and attorneys are concentrated in the cities.  The few legal services nonprofits serving rural areas cover large geographic regions with limited resources.  OneJustice’s Rural Justice Initiative helps fill that gap. The first-of-its-kind Justice Bus brings volunteer lawyer and law students from urban areas to staff 70 “pop-up” legal clinics per year in rural and isolated communities – reaching veterans, immigrants, seniors, and children around the state.  Over the last 10 years, OneJustice has engaged over 3,000 volunteers in serving more than 6,000 clients at over 360 clinics.  77% of their clients report that the legal help improved their legal situation and more than 75% report that the rural justice clinic was the first time they got help.
