Campaign for Equal Justice

The Campaign for Equal Justice is Washington state’s unified annual legal community giving drive benefiting all of our state’s civil legal aid programs and gives judges and attorneys the opportunity to make legal assistance available to thousands more. Wherever you live in Washington, the Campaign for Equal Justice reaches your neighbors and your community through the CLEAR legal hotline, a legal services office, or a volunteer attorney program.

You may donate to the Campaign for Equal Justice to support Washington's network of legal aid providers or you can designate your donation to specifically support the Laurel Rubin Farm Worker Justice Project

To Donate by Phone: Call the Campaign for Equal Justice at (206) 623-5261 to speak to a qualified representative.

In these challenging and uncertain times for migrant farm workers, the Laurel Rubin Farm Worker Justice Project is a simple and cost-effective way to help workers, their families and communities. The Laurel Rubin Farm Worker Justice Project places outstanding law students in farm worker communities throughout Washington state each summer alongside experienced farm worker advocates to help provide civil legal assistance to hundreds more migrant farm workers during the peak of the harvest seasons. Laurel Rubin interns spend 10-12 weeks in the summer traveling to migrant labor camps to provide hands-on outreach to inform farm workers of their rights and responsibilities and assist them on matters involving immigration, environmental justice, civil rights, payment of wages, worker safety and health, housing and consumer rights.

The Project is named in honor of Laurel Rubin, a talented, idealistic Northwest Justice Project attorney who was serving indigent farm workers in our state when she died tragically in 1998 while en route to meet with farm worker clients. Since the Project's inception in 1999, 27 law student summer advocates have been funded, three of whom came from farm worker families themselves.  Several Laurel Rubin Interns have chosen to become full time legal aid advocates following graduation from law school.

The financial support that The Campaign for Equal Justice receives from individuals, law firms, foundations, corporations and organizations is the backbone of private funding for civil legal services for the poor in Washington state. Financial contributions to The Campaign for Equal Justice enable the programs, which serve people in need, to continue building a structure and network of service providers working together toward the common goal:

Equal Justice For All Washingtonians
