The Center is dedicated to protecting the legal rights of the underrepresented. It works to achieve systemic change - through litigation, public education and legislation. PJC also operates a Tenant Advocacy Project (TAP) for people facing eviction who have unlawful living conditions. PJC seeks to enforce and expand the rights of people who suffer injustice because of their poverty or discrimination. We advocate in the courts, legislatures, and government agencies, and through public education and coalition building. Current projects focus on tenants, workers, immigrants, prisoners, homeless children, families needing medical assistance, and creating a right to counsel in civil cases.
