Our pro bono Children’s Law Clinic helps children and their families one on one in their court cases, providing free emergency legal assistance to children across the country.

Ways you can help

Public law & Policy

We work in our home state of Arizona to implement reforms, then share our work nationwide, helping local communities tailor reform to their needs.

Ways you can help

Constitutional Rights

People who hurt children have a constitutional right to counsel, public hearings, and a speedy trial. Yet children do not.

Ways you can help

For children in foster care to live happy lives, we need the help of others.
