The CBF works with members of our legal community and a number of partner organizations to educate legislators and government officials about the need for federal, state and local policies and legislation that improve access to justice.

Over the years, working together with a number of local and national partners and many dedicated volunteers, the CBF has successfully advocated for the passage of a number of important legislative initiatives to increase access to justice.

The continued success of our collective efforts depends on legislators and government officials hearing from their constituents about the impact that government funding of access to justice initiatives has in the lives of the people they represent.
