About Grassroots Law Project
At Grassroots Law Project – founded by civil rights activist and journalist Shaun King and civil rights attorney Lee Merritt – we believe in true liberation from the oppressive systems of policing, incarceration, and racial injustice. We combine the best of grassroots organizing with legal expertise to give people across the country the tools to make real change.
We advance policies that have the potential to drastically reduce the number of people harmed by police and prisons, advocate on behalf of families impacted by police violence and mass incarceration, and work with our partner PAC to elect leaders who are deeply committed to dismantling systems of oppression.
We are an ambitious, fast-paced, dynamic organization that puts the impact of the work first. We have taken on cases and campaigns that others deemed “impossible” – and then won.
