Who are we?

Public Counsel is a non-profit, pro bono legal services organization that provides free legal assistance to low-income consumers in Los Angeles County. Founded in 1970, Public Counsel is the nation’s largest provider of pro bono legal services.

Public Counsel’s Consumer Rights and Economic Justice project provides access to justice through direct legal and pro bono representation, self-help clinics, and policy advocacy that prioritize the rights of individuals like students, consumers, and low-income homeowners. We handle a wide array of consumer matters including predatory lending, debt collection, real estate fraud, foreclosure, student loans, criminal system debt, consumer fraud, and unfair business practices.

Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment (ACCE) is a grassroots, member-led, statewide community organization working with more than 15,000 members across California. ACCE is dedicated to raising the voices of everyday Californians, neighborhood by neighborhood, to fight for the policies and programs we need to improve our communities and create a brighter future.

Change from the bottom up: We take seriously our commitment to ground-up organizing to build a strong people’s movement that can create transformative community change. Our local neighborhood chapters and issue committees, led by ACCE Action member leaders, meet regularly to strategize and plan campaigns. Central to this work is the belief that there’s power in numbers and in collective action – ACCE Action members and their allies frequently “take to the streets” with rallies, town halls, and other actions to make their voices heard.
