When you support CEJ, you make a difference for low-income and elderly Oregonians all across the state. Your support helps legal aid serve people with the most critical legal needs—food, shelter, medical care, income maintenance, and physical safety. About forty percent of legal aid’s cases involve family law, usually helping victims of domestic violence, and almost eighty percent of legal aid’s clients are women, most with children to support. Join us in supporting legal aid in Oregon!
You can help us bring justice home.
Providing equal access to justice and high-quality legal representation to all Oregonians is central to the mission of the Oregon State Bar.
Across our diverse practices and no matter where we live in the state, we know that supporting equal access to justice is an important part of our legal community's mission, and a professional obligation that we are proud to take very seriously. A copy of the Resolution in Support of Adequate Funding for Legal Services to Low-Income Oregonians can be found here.
The Campaign for Equal Justice is here to support lawyers coming together to work for a more just system, to support the essential services that civil legal aid provides to every corner of our state, and to give back to our profession. Please join us this year with a donation in any amount.
You may see photos from the event on our events page or our Facebook page.
Legal aid is an essential service in Marion and Polk Counties and all over the state. Your support at the luncheon and beyond helps to create a more fair legal system and address unmet legal needs. By giving back to our profession, we affirm the belief that justice for all is a right, not a privilege.
You & Legal Aid Helped Clara
After Clara's abuser sent her to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, legal aid helped keep her and her son safe and in their home.
You & Legal Aid Helped Emily
Emily's husband was violent and the violence was escalating. Legal aid helped guide Emily through the restraining order process.
You & Legal Aid Helped Steve
When "Steve's" landlord shut off the boiler, leaving all the tenants without heat for eight months, legal aid helped them assert their rights.
