Our Mission

FAIR’s mission is to promote diversity within the plaintiffs’ employment bar in California, so the attorneys representing California’s workers are as diverse as those they seek to represent. FAIR also seeks generally to raise public consciousness about worker’s rights and remedies, to provide educational opportunities and programs to individuals who seek to advance the rights of workers, including but not limited to fellowships, internships, and scholarships, and to carry on other educational activities associated with FAIR’s goals.
