On June 10th, the Nectar community raised over $35,000 to help support a justice system that works for all of us. Read on the learn about the valuable work the Oregon Justice Resource Center does.
“The Oregon Justice Resource Center was founded in 2011 by Bobbin Singh and Erin McKee. Our goal is to promote civil rights and improve legal representation for communities that have often been underserved in the past: people living in poverty and people of color among them. We work in collaboration with like-minded organizations to maximize our reach to serve underrepresented populations, to train future public interest lawyers, and to educate our community on issues related to civil rights and civil liberties.https://ojrc.info/about-us
Integrative advocacy is our model. This strategy includes focused direct legal services, public awareness and education campaigns, strategic partnerships, and coordinating our legal and advocacy areas to promote criminal justice reform.”
