Why Donate to Equal Access to Justice
How does your donation help those New Mexicans in need?
"In New Mexico, there isn’t justice for all because there is a stratum of society that can’t afford legal help. The problems of low-income New Mexicans are problems that most of us never face."
Twila B. Larkin

According to the 2000 census, 41% (736,683) of the 1.7 million New Mexico residents qualify for no or low cost civil legal services. These needy individuals are spread throughout the state, as are the services of the Equal Access to Justice providers.
