Throughout its history Sugar Law has highlighted the interdependence of civil and economic rights, pursuing economic justice by supporting grassroots campaigns for a living wage, representing communities of color in challenging environmental racism, and pressing for corporate and government accountability.
Sugar Law is dedicated to helping individuals, community organizations, unions, attorneys, and other people who are working for social justice. In some cases, we offer direct legal representation or assistance in grassroots efforts. For others, we offer legal support, expert advice, or referrals to private attorneys skilled in specific fields. We engage in public education around important issues of economic justice. We have also been consulted by governmental bodies seeking advice as they enact protections for workers and community members.
