About the Organization: Public Counsel is the nation’s largest pro bono law firm. They work to achieve three main goals: protecting the legal rights of disadvantaged children; representing immigrants who have been the victims of torture, persecution, domestic violence, trafficking, and other crimes; and fostering economic justice by providing individuals and institutions in underserved communities with access to quality legal representation.

Our Partnership: We have been working together with SEACA, as well as Public Counsel and Team Friday, to produce an Anti-Displacement Toolkit aimed at providing tools and resources for local decision makers to avoid displacing existing communities through the development of green infrastructure. Public Counsel, who took the lead on authoring the document itself, brings valuable expertise to the table to ensure that the document is factual, credible, and peer-reviewed.
