Youth, Rights & Justice provides legal representation to children and parents involved in Oregon’s foster care and juvenile justice systems. Inspired by our clients’ stories, we also take our advocacy beyond the courts and into the schools, legislature and community.
Bottom Line for Portland
Our clients are low-income, and many are recovering from trauma and living with disabilities. Last year, we represented over 1,100 children or parents in the courts and schools. Additionally, by championing laws and systems reforms, we have improved the lives of over 500,000 vulnerable children and families since our founding.
Umpqua Bank will match the first $3,000 given to Youth, Rights & Justice.
“Every child in Oregon deserves to have hope and justice. Youth, Rights & Justice provides both.” —Oregon House Speaker Tina Kotek
