We pursue this mission by advocating on behalf of the most at-risk students — children living in poverty, children of color, children in the foster care and juvenile justice systems, children with disabilities, English Language Learners, and children experiencing homelessness. ELC employs a broad range of strategies including direct legal representation, impact litigation, educating parents and students about their legal rights, supporting community-based groups, and legislative, regulatory, and policy advocacy.
