Lawyers Committee For Civil Rights Under Law logo

Mission

At a historic meeting at the White House more than 50 years ago in 1963, President John F. Kennedy, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, and Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy challenged 244 of America's prominent attorneys to spearhead the cause for equal justice during a tumultuous civil rights era. The lawyers' committee was founded at this closed door meeting and has been at the forefront of efforts to advance civil rights ever since. Today, the lawyers' committee is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization whose principal mission is to secure equal justice for all through the rule of law, targeting in particular the inequities confronting African Americans and other racial and ethnic minorities. The lawyers' committee continues to marshal the resources of the private bar to obtain equal justice for minorities by addressing factors contributing to racial justice and economic opportunity.
