Our federal courts have long provided a level playing field in which regular Americans can stand up for their rights and be considered equal to powerful interests. Increasingly, Americans are finding it harder to take their cases to court and have their voices heard.
AFJAC works to ensure that Americans understand the importance of the court system and their own power to stand up for their rights. We will be releasing reports, taking positions in blog posts, and pursuing initiatives to educate and activate Americans regarding the courts throughout the coming year.
