ACCESS TO LEGAL COUNSEL and
JUSTICE . . .
DENIED:

POPULAR chronicles cases of American citizens who, for
various reasons, have been unable to retain legal counsel
or representation to challenge what they seem to  
reasonably believe is government misconduct.

POPULAR's FLAGSHIP PROJECT:

As its name suggests, POPULAR strives to tear down the figurative
"Wall Of Poverty" by helping safeguard justice and the rule of law in
America.  For Americans, the "rule of law" holds the promise of due
process, fair hearings, equal protection, and justice - - even for
unpopular people, in unpopular cases, and unpopular causes.  Yet
an integral part of POPULAR's work is addressing
retribution, too
often visited upon people seeking justice.  

What many may not realize is that law school graduates seeking
bar admission and legal professionals (including lawyers, judges,
and court administrators) are quite susceptible to retaliation for
supporting POPULAR's work and mission.
 By providing your
electronic signature
, you help:  (1).  an international campaign to
protect these particularly vulnerable supporters;  (2).  display
community support for POPULAR's general mission; and (3).  tear
down the Wall Of Poverty.

    Those who suffer injustice know it is dark,
    surreal, and frightening; world devoid of
    guidance, place markers, or stepping stones.  
    In POPULAR we are like blinded people, able to
    move and linked by joining hands and
    experience.  The more faith we show in each
    other, the stronger we become and can
    overcome the darkness.  We are the candles in
    the darkness.

    Nancy Swan, former Advisory Board member
OAK stands for Organizations
Associating for the Kind of
Change America Really
Needs.  It is a consortium of
grassroots advocates.

POPULAR's Holistic Approach:

When legal systems seem to break down, leaving poor and
other disadvantaged groups particularly vulnerable to abuses
of power,  POPULAR helps move them towards effective
self-help through a unique blend of corporate problem
solving strategies and old fashioned, grassroots advocacy.  
Yet progress can be hindered by community dysfunction akin
to a post-traumatic stress disorder among people long
plagued by social injustice.
