Who We Help
Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund is proud to support the efforts of Legal Action of Wisconsin, Wisconsin Judicare and Disability Rights Wisconsin. Unlike other nonprofits, these organizations do not collect any program fees, which leaves them with no internal resources to service their constituencies.
And that’s why your support of the Wisconsin Equal Justice Fund is so important. Your generous tax-deductible donation can allow them to continue and expand their work in helping Wisconsin citizens obtain the truth and justice they deserve.
