We are excited to welcome you to our new HCLC website. This is an important part of our 10th Anniversary celebrations. We want you to better understand our values, our work, and how to access our services. We also want to constantly improve our services and communications.
Our mission is to advocate for social change. We do this by providing legal advice and representation to individuals. We also do it through systemic activities in collaboration with community—public legal education, community organizing, and law reform. We want to work with you to improve the quality of life for all.
We approach everything we do using an Anti-Racism Anti-Oppression framework. We are committed to advocating for structural change at all levels of society to end inequities, power imbalances, and entrenched dominance.
Each week for the next few months we will highlight an area of our practice or a community initiative. These brief profiles will illustrate the scope of our work and our commitment to the community.
Thank you for joining us virtually to celebrate 10 Years of Inclusive Justice. We look forward to gathering together in person as soon as it is safe.
