The Equal Justice Center (EJC), to be built in Philadelphia’s Chinatown neighborhood, will house a collection of organizations that will provide effective and efficient legal services, in one location, for all Philadelphia residents. The EJC will co-locate some of the largest regional nonprofits that provide free or low-cost legal and social services to our most underserved populations.
With construction starting later this year and completion expected in 2022, the EJC will be the first of its kind in the United States.
