The Westside Justice Center has served up justice to  thousands of clients, conducted hundreds of workshops, and engaged with community members all over Chicagoland.

Formed in 2015 by a group of attorneys, community leaders and legal advocates, The Westside Justice Center (WJC) seeks to empower and re-power individuals and communities to demand and attain accountability and greater access to systems of justice.

Our Mission

The Westside Justice Center is a community-centered organization that promotes a holistic approach to justice by: 1) Facilitating legal literacy to reduce recidivism; 2) Providing legal and quasi- legal assistance to individuals; and 3) Establishing and nurturing community trust through participatory deliberations and restorative justice practices, to collaboratively mitigate the consequences of incarceration on criminalized communities.
