About us

OUR mission

The right to vote is fundamental to a healthy democracy. The mission of the Chicago Lawyers’ Committee’s Voting Rights Project is to eliminate barriers to voting and civic participation, especially in underrepresented, minority and low-income communities, to ensure that each eligible citizen is able cast a ballot and make her voice heard.

We achieve our mission through litigation, research, advocacy, collaboration with community groups, and engaging our member attorneys in programs and pro bono work.
