Who We Are

Towards Justice is a nonprofit law firm that seeks to advance economic justice through impact litigation, strategic policy advocacy, and capacity building. We were founded in response to the high volume of wage theft complaints that were not being addressed in Colorado, but quickly broadened our scope to take on cases that dismantle the power imbalances that undermine the value of work and diminish worker rights.

Bending the Arc

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said that “the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” At Towards Justice, we stand on the shoulders of the workers, organizers, advocates, and leaders who have fought for a more just world. We strive to do our part to continue bending the arc towards justice.

Fixing the Problem

Our society is plagued by asymmetries in bargaining power that allow some to profit tremendously off others. The people who lose out—disproportionally immigrants and people of color—are victims of rampant wage theft, fraud, anticompetitive conduct, and other injustices that undermine economic mobility. At bottom, too many people don’t have the power and resources to obtain fair treatment in the marketplace. Together, we seek to upend these injustices.
