Key LCCR Victories Through the Years
On December 10, 1968, 16 San Francisco lawyers launched the San Francisco Lawyer’s Committee for Urban Affairs (later Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights). Their purpose was to “enlist the members of the legal profession and their skills, leadership and special competence in a major effort to solve the problems of our urban areas.”

Since our inception, we have known that access to sound legal representation allows people a chance to be heard, to tell their own story and to speak their own truths. Our legacy of victories in Racial Justice, Immigrant Justice and Economic Justice have only been possible because our work is grounded in our commitment to direct services. We use the achievements of our past to inspire us to continue our work. In early 2018, we celebrated our 50th anniversary by reaffirming our commitment to continue advocating for justice and equity for the decades to come.
