The Need

For over 500,000 low-income Wisconsin citizens, legal services programs are a source of hope and of justice. Legal services programs are the dividing line between safety and domestic abuse, shelter and homelessness, and health and sickness.

Who We Help

Your contribution to Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund, Inc helps deliver legal services to over 20,000 low-income Wisconsinites. Kelly is one of those people. Her husband attacked her with a knife, inflicting critical neck and head wounds. A legal services program, working closely with the domestic violence shelter, helped Kelly become safe, gain sole custody of her children, and get a divorce. Her ex-husband was convicted of attempted first-degree intentional homicide and is serving a long prison sentence.

Equal Justice Depends On Wisconsin Lawyers

Federal funding for legal services has never been adequate or stable. Lawyers have a special obligation to pick up where the federal government has left off and to set the standard for a large community response.

Equal Justice Is Our Top Priority

Ensuring equal justice is a high priority for Wisconsin lawyers. Since its inception in 1997, Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund, Inc. has raised over $3.4 million for Wisconsin legal services. Lawyer and law firm contributions are the cornerstone of our efforts and the catalyst for a growing public/private partnership with foundations and corporations.

Why Give

As lawyers, we share a common obligation to safeguard the promise of equal justice. Your contribution to Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund, Inc is the single most effective way you can do your part to ensure equal justice in Wisconsin.
