EBCLC’s Community Economic Justice Clinic (CEJ) advances people-oriented economic development and empowers low-income communities of color to build long-term solutions to poverty in the East Bay through a racial justice and anti-displacement lens.
CEJ achieves this by promoting community and cooperative business development, providing non-profit support, and advancing the protection, preservation, and production of housing that is affordable for low-income communities of color.
CEJ provides free legal advice, representation, and education to low‐income entrepreneurs, minority-owned businesses, and nonprofits, who advance CEJ’s mission.
CEJ partners with community groups and coalitions to advocate and support policy measures at a local and state level that benefit our client base – those most disproportionately impacted by the affordable housing crisis and gentrification in the East Bay.
