Voices for Civil Justice is a national nonprofit communications hub launched in 2013 that raises awareness of civil legal aid. Voices seeks to strengthen and broaden the brand identity of civil legal aid and to establish, via a drumbeat of media coverage, a comprehensive narrative of what civil legal aid is and why it matters. For more information, see http://voicesforciviljustice.org.
In July 2017, Voices released findings of Voices’ latest round of messaging research conducted by Celinda Lake: Building a Civil Justice System that Delivers Justice for All. According to the research 84 percent of voters believe it is important for our democracy to ensure everyone has access to the civil justice system—an enormous level of support, indicating this is a core value of a large majority of Americans. And, 82 percent of voters agree that “equal justice under the law is a right, not a privilege.”Voters want civil justice reform, and they strongly support a wide range of services to enable everyone to get access to the information and effective assistance they need, when they need it,and in a form they can use.
