The Justice Bus Project takes teams of attorney and law student volunteers from urban areas to set up free legal clinics for low-income Californians living in rural and isolated communities. These clinics provide life-changing legal assistance to low-income veterans, vulnerable seniors, children with disabilities, low-wage workers, immigrant youth, and families.
Our team works closely with law schools, law firms, and in-house legal departments to carefully match volunteer interests with the regions and communities we serve with the Justice Bus Project. Trips are usually one full day in length, although we also offer longer trips for law schools as part of alternative spring and winter holiday breaks. Justice Bus trips are coordinated through both our San Francisco and Los Angeles offices, allowing convenient departure from urban areas in both Northern and Southern California.
Want to volunteer? We’d love to have you hop on the bus! Contact Jessica Therkelsen, Director of the Pro Bono Justice Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to start the process of building a Justice Bus trip for your law school, student group, law firm, or in-house legal department.
Want to support the project? We’d be delighted to add you to one of our Justice Bus Circles – informal groups of charitable investors who help fund trips to serve specific geographic regions or particular client communities. Contact Julia Wilson, Chief Executive Officer, at email@example.com for more information. Thank you!
