The Urban Justice Center is home to nine projects:
- Community Development Project
- Domestic Violence Project
- Human Rights Project
- Mental Health Project
- Peter Cicchino Youth Project
- Safety Net Project
- Sex Workers Project
- Street Vendor Project
Each of our projects operates independently with a common goal of achieving social justice and individual rights. Although, our projects serve a diverse client bases, they all face the challenge of making legal services easily accessible to people living on the streets and in poverty, and to make social advocacy and law reform efforts directly responsive to the daily struggles of those individuals.
The UJC has developed a unique model to achieve both these ends. Our projects provide outreach legal work in various communities to fuel our broader advocacy efforts. All of our projects rely on this model, or make similar efforts to unite individual stories into a collective voice for social change.
