We couldn’t promote justice without you!

We’re grateful for our generous partners who make fighting for justice for under-served communities possible. Our work is possible because of your investment. Thank you!


“I am grateful for how my supervisor and the whole program encouraged me to build healthy and trusting relationships with our clients as a central part of our legal practice. I was told to not just jump in and transactionally get the story I needed for the asylum declaration, but to create space for stories and conversation that would help my client feel safe and comfortable sharing.”

Taliah Mirmalek, Class of 2023

“We committed to a long-term funding relationship with EBCLC because, first and foremost, they chose women of color as their north star. It means they have a sharp clarity of purpose in the work of closing the racial and gender wealth gap. They know that winning legal cases is important, but that winning cases is not the same thing as building community power. They see the big trends, and simultaneously they’re laser-focused on the people themselves: their experiences, their needs, their choices. They use the data from individual cases to inform their big picture policy agenda so that women of color are heard and get more just and long-lasting results.”

“EBCLC’s Clinics work in concert to alleviate issues that families encounter from an array of sectors. The Health and Welfare clinic acts as a gateway, moving clients through needs assessments and ushering them toward additional resources.”

Donzahniya Pitre, Program Coordinator

“EBCLC’s Mission and commitment to racial and social justice is one I’ve always shared. My time as a student was invaluable, and I am honored to further my commitment to progressive and equitable change as a newly appointed member of EBCL’s board of Directors.”

Luke Apfeld, Board Member

“EBCLC helped me so much and I am thankful every day that I found an organization like EBCLC, whose work went above and beyond to help me win my asylum case.”

Anonymous, Former EBCLC client
