The mission of the Hudson Valley Justice Center is to advance social and economic justice in the lower and mid-Hudson Valley region through legal advocacy. We partner with grassroots community organizations and provide free legal assistance to individuals and groups in a range of issue areas to support collective movements for change. Hudson Valley Justice Center operates free from federal funding restrictions and our services are available to all eligible persons regardless of immigration status.
“HVJC lawyers are with us in the community, at evening meetings, in church basements and wherever we are organizing for affordable housing. This model of using legal assistance to engage community members in collective action is now an essential part of our power building.”
“HVJC is providing legal assistance in a unique and powerful way. Our partnership with HVJC helps Community Voices Heard to address systemic injustices affecting low-income communities throughout the Hudson Valley region.”
“Having a lawyer from HVJC to assist us right here at the Worker Center is a great help to our community. Immigrant workers who suffer wage theft and other forms of work exploitation know they can find reliable, free legal help. We can then get them involved in our collective efforts to exercise their labor rights and fight for justice.”
“HVJC is helping us to fight for voting rights in Port Chester. This is a grassroots struggle and legal support is critical. Having lawyers with us on the front lines is an incredibly important resource.”
