You can help ensure dignity and justice for all. 

You Can Make a Difference

With your help, we're standing up for the most vulnerable people in society – those who have no other champion. We’re exposing injustice, working on the front lines in the State Capitol and advancing justice for farmworkers, immigrants, and the rural poor.

We never take legal fees from our clients, and we accept no government funding that inhibits our ability to serve our clients. We rely on the compassion and generosity of people like you.

We also welcome donations by both phone and mail. Please call us at 916-446-7904 ext 103. Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PST. 

CRLA Foundation's Federal Tax ID# is: 94-2800442

1. Increase their current income or that of a designated beneficiary;
