The justice gap exacerbates systemic inequities.
The divide between legal needs and available services is known as the “justice gap,” and it is felt most acutely by our most vulnerable populations. CYFA is addressing the justice gap through its Legal Advocacy Workshops (LAW).
Access to justice requires more than the appointment of counsel – it demands high-quality and effective representation. LAW works to make justice equal by amplifying the skills of legal professionals and those adjacent to the legal system through continued educational opportunities.
