King County Law Library Foundation
Without access to information, there is no justice.
The King County Law Library Foundation supports the King County Law Library in its mission to provide all persons in King County with equitable access to legal information.
There is a substantial justice gap in Washington State. Certain populations face significantly more civil legal issues on average than others. These same groups of people also face considerable inequities in access to legal assistance and information services.
According to the Washington State Supreme Court’s 2015 Civil Legal Needs Study Update, 7 in 10 low-income households in Washington State have at least one serious civil legal problem each year. Many families face multiple legal issues. These challenges are compounded by a lack of access to legal information and services. As a result, many people do not get the assistance they need.
The Covid-19 pandemic has exacerbated these inequities and has taken a disproportionate toll on low-income households and communities of color.
The King County Law Library strives to close the justice gap by providing the public with access to legal information and resources. The King County Law Library Foundation advocates for and provides financial support to the Library.
King County Law Library Foundation is a Section 501 (c)(3) public charity (EIN: 83-0969459). King County Law Library Foundation is registered with Washington State’s Charities Program as required by law.
