The North Carolina Justice Center is the state's leading progressive advocacy and research organization. Our mission is to end poverty in North Carolina by ensuring that every household has access to the resources, services and fair treatment it needs to achieve economic security.
The Justice Center works to improve the lives of low- and moderate-income North Carolinians through five main strategies:
Litigation of cases that will have widespread impact on public policy and protections
Analysis of current public policies and research on alternatives that will reduce poverty
Advocacy for policy changes that will benefit disadvantaged communities
Community Education that empowers individuals and groups to pursue change
Communication that influences state leaders and shapes public opinion
