We have been advocates for a just and equitable Spokane since 1999.

On the individual level, the Center helps thousands of people in Spokane with civil legal services such as getting their driver’s license back, filing or requesting public records, navigating or reducing Legal Financial Obligations (LFOs) or dealing with landlord abuses. Our programs work to preserve and protect our natural environment for the wellness of our planet and community, to overcome barriers to employment and to assist those who have been previously incarcerated to get back on their feet.

On the community level, we advocate to keep our local governments accountable for things like police misconduct, public safety and enforcing land use laws.  We also work to improve medical and legal access for the disadvantaged, working with community partners and governments to create better polices and practices that will equitably serve people from ALL economic and social strata. These innovative approaches meanwhile, save taxpayers thousands of dollars.
