LEGAL SUPPORT FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE

BUSINESS LEGAL SERVICES FOR ORGANIZATIONS CREATING CHANGE

The basis of the dominant economic system is oppression: extract as much as you can from others for as little as possible in exchange. In this scheme, those who lose are disproportionately Black, Indigenous, and people of color. 

Building a business is a pathway to abundance and self-determination. When operated in a way that nourishes rather than extracts, businesses can uplift not only their owners but their entire communities. 

I help businesses like these get the resources that they need in order to thrive. Doing this requires knowing the ins and outs of how to structure a business, how to devise a fundraising strategy, and how to make sure all of this is done legally.

 

I have gained this knowledge by working as a corporate and securities lawyer for seven years. My passion for social justice arises from my experience as a non-white, non-male, non-wealthy person as well as six years working in other organizations focused on antiracism and environmental and economic justice.

See below for a list of some of the legal services I offer.  

 

MY CLIENTS

Because women of color have to work the hardest to get funding for their businesses, and because I know what it is to be a woman of color, woman of color-led organizations are my target clients.

However, I recognize that we are all in this together, regardless of race or gender, so I welcome other organizations with BIPOC leadership as well as white-led organizations who are committed to antiracism and collective liberation.
