“Justice consists not in being neutral between right and wrong, but in finding out the right and upholding it, wherever found, against the wrong.”
President Theodore Roosevelt
Legal advocacy serves as a voice for those who are marginalized and criminalized due to their social, racial, or economic status. Individuals, families, and communities face discrimination based upon race, gender, sexuality, and disability in employment, home ownership, criminal sentencing, and more. Systemic changes are needed to promote a society of equal opportunity, and the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden helps bring about change by reshaping the interpretation of the laws that are meant to provide equal rights and liberties to all.
