In Tribute….

Today, we pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest advocates for peace and justice, Mahatma Gandhi, on the 143rd anniversary of his birth.  His message was simple, yet his wisdom profound:

“Poverty is the worst form of violence.”

Let us honor his memory by redoubling our efforts to make this a more peaceful, just and inclusive community.

About Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless

The Washington Legal Clinic for the Homeless envisions a just and inclusive community for all residents of the District of Columbia, where housing is a human right and where every individual and family has equal access to the resources they need to thrive. Our mission is to use the law to make justice a reality for our neighbors who struggle with homelessness and poverty. Combining community lawyering and advocacy to achieve our clients’ goals, our expert staff and network of volunteer attorneys provide low barrier, comprehensive legal services at intake sites throughout the District of Columbia, helping our clients to access housing, shelter, and life-saving services. Rooted in the experiences of this client work, we effectively blend system reform efforts, policy advocacy, community education and client engagement to advocate for long term improvements in local and federal programs that serve the low- and no-income community.
