What We Do

We remove legal barriers so all children stay in school and thrive. We advocate for educational equity, amplifying the voices of our most vulnerable children by providing advocacy and legal representation at no cost in limited engagements for low-income public school families needing help with special education and student discipline; obtaining data, and informing the public, elected officials, and other community organizations about the access-to-justice gap in Nebraska and its statewide impact on students; and providing interactive programming to teach special education and student discipline rights to families, community and Nebraska lawyers.

Interesting Info
