Protecting children, helping survivors rebuild their lives
Human trafficking is the exploitation of vulnerability for profit. Founded in 2009, JusticeMatters is a nonprofit law firm that addresses the roots (causes) and repercussions (impacts) of human trafficking. We help our clients overcome legal barriers to safety, stability, and services, which are foundational to wellbeing. Centering client voices, we advocate for systems change to prevent human trafficking from happening in the first place.
We provide trauma-informed legal services and promote just policies and practices throughout North Carolina.
Since 2011, we have been at the forefront of efforts to integrate principles of trauma-informed care in the legal profession – safety, trustworthiness, transparency, collaboration, empowerment, and choice. We believe this is critical for both client and staff wellbeing.
Rooted and grounded
We bear witness to the courage and resilience of survivors, the sacrifice and grit of caregivers, the expertise and dedication of our collaborative partners, the passion and generosity of our supporters, and our mutual calling to seek justice for the flourishing of our neighbors here in North Carolina.
